Factor Analysis Defines Distinct Upper and Lower Gastrointestinal Symptom Groups Compatible With Rome IV Criteria in a Population-based Study

, , , , , , &
Background & Aims: The Rome IV criteria define functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorders by specific combinations of symptoms. It is possible to empirically evaluate these symptom combinations by factor analysis (a statistical procedure that groups variables that correlate). However, this analysis has not been performed for the Rome IV criteria, and factor analyses based on the previous versions of the Rome criteria did not use population-based data.
