\title{ Eigenvalues Vectors From the Litterature }

  Classical examples of eigenvalues vectors used to study the number of factors 
  to retain in the litterature. These examples generally give the number of
  subjects use to obtain these eigenvalues. 
  The number of subjects is used with the parallel analysis.


 A list of examples. For each example, a list is also used to give the eigenvalues
 vector and the number of subjects.

 Other datasets will be added in future versions of the package.
