Number of Factors - PLS-R


Community Member


Jul 14, 2017

I have a data set which has 7 independent variables and 107 dependent varaibles. When i did the PLS, the minimizing number of factors came out to be zero. The minimum RMPRESS is 1.111. However, when i randomly remove some of the Y variables, I got a good fit model with two factors. Could somebody tell why is it happening. What are some of the remdies/counclusions. Thanks
