Hall factor of electrons in $\Gamma$-valley is calculated as functions of temperature, impurity concentration, and nonparabolicity of conduction valleys by taking into account the current density obtained from the Boltzmann transport equation. The dependence of the Hall factor on the temperature is clearly shown in the case of the optical phonon scattering and that on the impurity concentration is obvious in the case of the ionized impurity scattering. As the nonparabolicity of the conduction band increases, the Hall factor due to the acoustic or optic phonon scattering increases, whereas that due to the ionized impurity scattering decreases. The change of the Hall factor can be analysed in terms of the dispersion of relaxation time.
