Factor Pattern Matrix
Mean & SD Matrix
Data Matrix

Three sets of information is required

Factor Pattern Matrix :
    - Each row represents a variable
    - Each column represent a factor
    - Each cell the loading of that variable on that factor
    - From Orthogonal Rotation, only 1 matrix is used (Pattern and Structure Matrix are the same)
    - From Oblique Rotation, the Pattern Matrix (not Structure Matrix) is used

Mean & SD Matrix : a two column matrix
    - Each row represents a variable
    - Column 1 contains the Mean Value of the variable
    - Column 2 contains the Standard Deviation of the variable

Data Matrix :
    - Each row represents a subject
    - Each column represents a variable
    - Each cell the value of that variable for that subject
