In this issue of Pediatric Exercise Science, Bruno et al. introduce dynamic factor analysis (DFA) as a new mathematical approach for analyzing the power output (PO) curve of a Wingate Test. DFA is an analytical technique used to estimate the underlying common patterns or component trends in a larger set of time series data. It's especially well suited for nonlinear data streams as found in econometric and ecological data sets (3). In this study DFA was applied to the upper and lower body PO curves generated by 11-12 year-old swimmers and soccer players, comparing this technique to a standard statistical assessment to see if DFA detected additional differences in the PO curves of participants.
