    Absolute spectroscopic factors are derived using radial wave functions determined from magnetic electron scattering. Multipole sum rules are used to relate these spectroscopic factors to occupation numbers obtained from electron scattering. We conclude that a large part (≈30–40%) of the single-particle strength is not observed. This makes questionable the practice to normalize spectroscopic factors to sum rule values.
