    A second order factor analysis of community satisfaction in a British New Town
    (Wichita State University, Department of Psychology, 1976) Bardo, John W.; Newton, R. D.
    First-order community satisfaction factors derived in an analysis of data from a British New Town were subjected to secondary factor analysis; an oblique solution with five factors resulted. The data suggest several broad categories of variables that may affect community satisfaction as well as certain other possible analyses based on community comparisons.

    Some differential ability patterns in children and their relationship to environmental and personality dimensions
    (Wichita State University, Department of Psychology, 1976) Barton, Keith
    First, evidence is presented to show that children with discrepant ability patterns tend to differ consistently on several personality dimensions and in their environmental experiences. Second, a theoretical model, linking ability patterns to personality and environmental variables is suggested based on the empirical evidence. Finally, ways of testing this model are discussed and some possible implications detailed.

    Second order factors of the CAQ in a normal population
    (Wichita State University, Department of Psychology, 1976) Schwartz, S.A.
    The purpose of the study was to determine how pathological and personality source traits would align in data obtained from a normal sample. The Clinical Analysis Questionnaire (CAQ) was administered to 251 undergraduates and the data subjected to an oblique factor analysis. Ten interpretable second order factors were extracted, yielding a moderate relationship with a previous analysis (Cattell, 1973). It was concluded that a relatively different factor structure was necessary for a normal population than was found for the prior mixed normal-pathological sample.

    Alignment and identification of factors in the Early School and Preschool Personality Questionnaires
    (Wichita State University, Department of Psychology, 1976) Cattell, Raymond B. (Raymond Bernard), 1905-1998; Dreger, Ralph Mason
    Both the Early School Personality Questionnaire and the Preschool Personality Questionnaire were administered to 950 first-grade children, with full protocols for 584 of them, in a "boundry study" designed to compare factors of personality at ages 4-6 and 6-8. Factors derived from Varimax and Promax rotations were subjected to Rotoplot. Nine factors were substantially matched in both age groups. One (B, the intelligence factor) is missing from the PSPQ since no intelligence items per se are included in the PSPQ, another (C, the ego strength factor) does not appear, and two others are only partially matched. Two factors showed up on the PSPQ with no counterparts in the ESPQ. And two appear to be error factors.
