CFA Software

  • Mark Stemmler
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Statistics book series (BRIEFSSTATIST)


This chapter describes the CFA software that is freely available for use. One is a freeware written by Alexander von Eye (Michigan State University). The other is a R-package called confreq written by Jörg-Hendrik Heine (LMU Munich). The use of both software packages is described and demonstrated with data examples. Throughout the book both packages built the bases for demonstrating the use of Configural Frequency Analysis (CFA).
