New paper published in Psychometrika!
We are happy to announce the publication of the paper titled “Parceling Cannot Reduce Factor Indeterminacy in Factor Analysis: A Research Note,” authored by Edward E Rigdon (Georgia State University), Jan-Michael Becker (University of Cologne), and Marko Sarstedt (OVGU) in Psychometrika. In this paper, the authors analytically show that parceling generally increases factor indeterminacy, thereby increasing the validity gap between constructs and the conceptual variables that they represent.
