Abstract: In this thesis, we examine several versions of the heteroskedasticity-consistent covariance matrix estimators for the factor analysis model. These estimators are extensions of Hinkley (1977), White (1980), Shao and Wu (1987) and Cribari-Neto (2000) that were proposed for the ordinary least squares estimators in the classical linear regression model. We consider the two-stage least squares estimation method and present versions of these heteroskedasticity-consistent covariance matrix estimators for the factor loadings in the factor analysis model. A simulation study was conducted to assess and compare these variance estimators, under different factor and error distributions.
