Exploratory Factor Analysis is part of the Understanding Research series, which focuses on the process of writing up social research. The series is broken down into three categories: Understanding Statistics (of which Exploratory Factor Analysis is a part), Understanding Measurement, and Understanding Qualitative Research.

Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) has played a major role in research conducted in the social sciences for more than 100 years. This book provides a non-mathematical introduction to the underlying theory of EFA and reviews the key decisions that must be made in its implementation.
