SPSS Factor Analysis on Non-Parametric Data
Anup, UK
Hi, I have 42 items, coded on binary scale 1 or 0. I wish to perform an Exploratory Factor Analysis using SPSS 15.0
My query: Is it possible to perform Exploratory Factor Analysis with such items coded in binary form. If yes, How to perform it in SPSS ?

I think you cannot code 42 items using only 2 codes 0 and 1. This cannot be used to generate any result and you will be under confusion. You have to code them with a unique code.
