Hello there,

Quick question about Factor analysis,
When you conduct "factor extraction", there are three ways of doing so (Kaiser's criterion, Scree test, and Parallel Analysis), do you have to conduct all three, or is one enough for the purpose of determining the smallest number of factors? and which one would you suggest?
I've read that parallel analysis is the most powerful.

Thank you in advance!
