Abstract.  I present paran, an implementation of Horn’s parallel analysis criteria for factor or component retention in common factor analysis or principal component analysis in Stata. The command permits classical parallel analysis and more recent extensions to it for the pca and factor commands. paran provides a needed extension to Stata’s built-in factor- and component-retention criteria.
