You can buy a Kill-A-Watt meter for $25-$30 to measure them directly.
I don't know of any public measurement doc of such devices.
Generally anything with motor is likely inductive load but there are a lot of new air conditioners and refrig that have power factor correction.
TV, computer, and other such electronic devices are generally 0.6 PF but is pulse current spurts due to just rectifying AC mains feeding filter cap to run their switching power supplies. The current spike occurs at as the cap is replenished with charge near peak of input sinewave.
Again, there are more and more switching power supplies that have power factor correction circuitry.
I dont have a table of power factors for typical home loads, but you can measure
this if you measure the phase angle between the current and voltage. The
power factor is the cosine of the angle. It also helps to log the current and
the leading or lagging status of the current in case you want to total them
up. Adding two loads means finding the vector sum of the two and the
power factor is again the cosine of the resulting angle.
