Dear R users:
I'm wondering if it's possible to get the residual correlation matrix when using factanal.
Since factanal assumes that the errors are normally distributed and independent (provided the factor model fits the data) this would be useful. Of course you would need to submit the data to the function to get the residuals (not just their correlation matrix), but it should be possible to get the residual correlation matrix if only the data correlation matrix is provided.
