I am working on factor analysis problem and after creating the model when I looked on the model I find the pvalue but I am not able to understand what it tells about the model

model_f1<-factanal(z,factor=3,rotation=“varimax”)
Test of the hypothesis that 3 factors are sufficient.
The chi square statistic is 30.53 on 25 degrees of freedom.
The p-value is 0.205

@harry,

Here, p values give you statistical inference about how these factors predicts the data well. This is why the result says “Test of the hypothesis that 3 factor is sufficient.”

Thx,
