  1. The order of some items has been rearranged from their order in the UPDRS to show some patterns more clearly. R = Right-hand side; L = left-hand side; H/N = Head and Neck. All t-values for the loadings were greater than 12.9; for the residual variances they were typically around 8. The smallest t-values were for Right-hand side Postural Tremor (PD-On: 2.2; PD-Off: 4.2; PSP: 0.52); these three residual variances were the only ones with t-values below 4.5.
