How to use PCA/Factor analysis node in SPSS Modeler

  • 1.  How to use PCA/Factor analysis node in SPSS Modeler

    Hello,

    I'm attempting to perform dimensionality reduction on a dataset of approx. 90 variables of mixed type (continuous, categorical, flag data types) in SPSS Modeler. There are around 90k rows. I want to use Principal Axis Factoring in the PCA/Factor node, but I'm receiving an error:

    Failed to build PCA model, which is likely caused by lack of training rows. Increase row number and try again.

    However, I can't see any option in the node to change the number of training rows. I've tried simplifying the dataset by only retaining continuous fields but I see the same error.

    Is there any support for building this type of model?

    Thanks.
