Summary

Explicit formulas are derived for the asymptotic sampling variances and covariances of the maximum likelihood estimators for factor-analysis parameters in the special case where there is just one common factor. The effect of the number of variables on these variances and covariances is indicated. A formula is given showing to what extent the usual covariance between two of a set of variables can be estimated more efficiently when there is known to be just one common factor. (Author)
