Holzinger and Swineford Dataset (9 Variables)

The classic Holzinger and Swineford (1939) dataset consists of mental ability test scores of seventh- and eighth-grade children from two different schools (Pasteur and Grant-White). In the original dataset (available in the MBESS package), there are scores for 26 tests. However, a smaller subset with 9 variables is more widely used in the literature (for example in Joreskog's 1969 paper, which also uses the 145 subjects from the Grant-White school only).
