Factor analysis (FA) is the most commonly used pattern recognition methodology in social and health research. A technique that may help to better retrieve true information from FA is the rotation of the information axes. The main goal is to test the reliability of the results derived through FA and to reveal the best rotation method under various scenarios. Based on the results of the simulations, it was observed that when applying non-orthogonal rotation, the results were more repeatable as compared to the orthogonal rotation, and, when no rotation was applied.
