I plan to conduct a confirmatory factor analysis, wherein there are 12 observed variables and 3 latent variables. My sample size is 30. However, I read that to conduct a factor analysis, the sample size needs to be big.
Is there a way to conduct confirmatory factor analysis with a small sample size? I heard about regularized exploratory factor analysis is used for small sample sizes. Is there an equivalent of it with confirmatory factor analysis?
Also, what softwares can I use to run these? I currently have SPSS, AMOS, and LISREL.
