This bibliography, prepared for my Multivariate Data Analysis graduate course and Statistical Consulting Service short course lists over 130 references dealing with factor analysis and related methods, including path analysis and structural equations modelling. Most (but not all) have brief descriptive or evaluative comments to help you determine if they are worth pursuing.
