I have run a principal axis factor analysis and I want to form scales for each factor. To be more specific, after having run the FA, I would like to select all items that load in a specific factor and form a new variable (which will be the factor). For instance, if item 1 and item 5 load to factor1 which expresses distress, I would like to create a new variable under the name Distress, which will consist of item 1 + item 5. So how can this be done in SPSS? Apart from the compute command using SPSS syntax, is there an alternative way to form such scales in SPSS?
