It doesn't seem to me that factanal() provides Kaiser's Measure of Sampling Adequacy, which should be computed for factor problems based on a small number of subjects, though perhaps it is elsewhere. Does anyone know? (Better yet, is there a complete list of procedures that can be performed by all available packages?)

   See this post from the archives:

http://finzi.psych.upenn.edu/R/Rhelp02a/archive/106430.html

   which I found using RSiteSearch("Kaiser sampling adequacy"). I don't know of a complete list of all procedures (functions) in all packages, but, among other things, RSiteSearch() is very useful when the question is, "Is there a package or function to do X?"
