i just wanted to know if i could use factor scores and crosstab it with demographics (i.e. gender, age, etc.)? I have 69 likert-scale variables and run factor analysis on SPSS. It gave me 10 new variables (types of personality. i just wanted to see the demographics of each new variables. Thanks!!!
In SPSS, choose Analyze...Descriptive Statistics...Explore. The factor scores will be your dependents, and a demographic grouping will be your "factor" in this procedure. I'd choose Plots Only to start with and request boxplots. You can get either factor levels together or dependents together: you can experiment.
Later, when you want means and standard deviations and such, I'd use the Summarize command, located in the menus at Analyze...Reports...Case Summaries. You can also experiment with "means [var list] by [var list]/stat anova."
However, I'd caution you that some of your 10 factors are likely to be marginal ones that have small eigenvalues and explain little of the total item variance. Maybe consider making your criteria stricter for factor extraction, such as using a subcommand like "/criteria mineigen (1.5)" or 2.0 instead of 1.0 which is so commonly used. It'll also be a plus to reduce your number of factors when it comes to displaying and explaining your results.
