- class sklearn.decomposition.FactorAnalysis(n_components=None, *, tol=0.01, copy=True, max_iter=1000, noise_variance_init=None, svd_method='randomized', iterated_power=3, rotation=None, random_state=0)[source]¶
Factor Analysis (FA).
A simple linear generative model with Gaussian latent variables.
The observations are assumed to be caused by a linear transformation of lower dimensional latent factors and added Gaussian noise. Without loss of generality the factors are distributed according to a Gaussian with zero mean and unit covariance. The noise is also zero mean and has an arbitrary diagonal covariance matrix.
If we would restrict the model further, by assuming that the Gaussian noise is even isotropic (all diagonal entries are the same) we would obtain
PCA
.FactorAnalysis performs a maximum likelihood estimate of the so-called
loading
matrix, the transformation of the latent variables to the observed ones, using SVD based approach.Read more in the User Guide.
New in version 0.13.
- Parameters:
- n_componentsint, default=None
Dimensionality of latent space, the number of components of
X
that are obtained aftertransform
. If None, n_components is set to the number of features.- tolfloat, default=1e-2
Stopping tolerance for log-likelihood increase.
- copybool, default=True
Whether to make a copy of X. If
False
, the input X gets overwritten during fitting.- max_iterint, default=1000
Maximum number of iterations.
- noise_variance_initarray-like of shape (n_features,), default=None
The initial guess of the noise variance for each feature. If None, it defaults to np.ones(n_features).
- svd_method{‘lapack’, ‘randomized’}, default=’randomized’
Which SVD method to use. If ‘lapack’ use standard SVD from scipy.linalg, if ‘randomized’ use fast
randomized_svd
function. Defaults to ‘randomized’. For most applications ‘randomized’ will be sufficiently precise while providing significant speed gains. Accuracy can also be improved by setting higher values foriterated_power
. If this is not sufficient, for maximum precision you should choose ‘lapack’.- iterated_powerint, default=3
Number of iterations for the power method. 3 by default. Only used if
svd_method
equals ‘randomized’.- rotation{‘varimax’, ‘quartimax’}, default=None
If not None, apply the indicated rotation. Currently, varimax and quartimax are implemented. See “The varimax criterion for analytic rotation in factor analysis” H. F. Kaiser, 1958.
New in version 0.24.
- random_stateint or RandomState instance, default=0
Only used when
svd_method
equals ‘randomized’. Pass an int for reproducible results across multiple function calls. See Glossary.
- Attributes:
- components_ndarray of shape (n_components, n_features)
Components with maximum variance.
- loglike_list of shape (n_iterations,)
The log likelihood at each iteration.
- noise_variance_ndarray of shape (n_features,)
The estimated noise variance for each feature.
- n_iter_int
Number of iterations run.
- mean_ndarray of shape (n_features,)
Per-feature empirical mean, estimated from the training set.
- n_features_in_int
Number of features seen during fit.
New in version 0.24.
- feature_names_in_ndarray of shape (
n_features_in_
,) Names of features seen during fit. Defined only when
X
has feature names that are all strings.New in version 1.0.

PCA
Principal component analysis is also a latent linear variable model which however assumes equal noise variance for each feature. This extra assumption makes probabilistic PCA faster as it can be computed in closed form.
