Abstract:

A procedure for including measured analytical uncertainty into data analysis methodology is discussed. The suitability of various dispersion matrices and matrix rank determination criteria for data having analytical uncertainty is investigated. A criterion useful for judging the number of factors insensitive to analytical uncertainty is presented. A model data structure for investigating the behavior of factor analysis techniques is described and analyzed. Author
