    Regression Analysis




    Hello,

    It would be great if somebody can help me with this:

    Is it correct to conduct factor analysis on data source (A) and then run a simple regression analysis with derived factor from factor analysis as independent variable and a item from the same data source (A) as dependent variable?

    Thanks

    It is correct to "conduct factor analysis on data source (A) and then run a simple regression analysis with derived factor". However, when you say "and a item from the same data source" -- do you imply an item that was used in the factor analysis or just an item that comes from the same data set in general? In case of the former, the analysis does not seem appropriate; in case of the latter it will be ok. Note, when variables are coming from the same data set, you can conduct a number of tests to check the common method bias, if that is the case.
