A questionnaire survey was conducted to explore underlying factors affecting pedestrian road crossing behavior. The respondents were asked to answer Likert type questions along with demographic questions (such age, gender etc.).
As the questionnaire contained new questions as compared to some existing validated scales, therefore, exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was carried out after collecting the data.
I got four underlying factors after conducting EFA.
Can I use the factor scores (obtained through EFA) for further analysis?
For example, can I use two-way ANOVA to determine the impact of age and gender on a factor?
