EXPLORATORY AND CONFIRMATORY FACTOR ANALYSIS OF COLLABORATION NETWORK TO PROMOTE THE UNDERPRIVILEGED GROUPS IN ACCESSIBILITY AND UTILIZATION OF BROADCASTING AND TELECOMMUNICATION INFORMATION
The objectives of this study were 1) to examine the elements of collaboration networks that promote accessibility and utilization of broadcasting and telecommunication information among underprivileged groups and 2) to analyze both exploratory and confirmatory elements of collaboration networks. A mixed-method approach was employed, combining qualitative tools such as interviews and focus groups, with a quantitative tool in the form of a questionnaire. Data analysis involved content analysis, exploratory factor analysis, and confirmatory factor analysis. The study revealed that the established collaboration network model was suitable for the empirical data (sig. = 0.102). Moreover, a significant indicator for a successful collaboration network comprised 7 components, further divided into 24 observed variables. These variables can be utilized to create 8 practical models.
