Factor scores

When running a factor analysis by proc factor using methods other than principal components, sas is computing factor scores. Problem is, I cannot find what type of factor scores are being produced. Alternatives typically being the so-called regression method (or empirical Bayes predictor) or the Bartlett method. Does anyone now?

Suggest searching at the SAS support website, either using the website's SEARCH facility or consider using the Google advanced search argument below:

There is SAS-hosted product documentation with detailed topic information and also technical/conference reference material which should be useful for your question/post.
