Analysis of Multiple Dependent Variables

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses structural equation modeling (SEM), also referred to as causal modeling and covariance structure analysis, which is used to evaluate the consistency of substantive theories with empirical data. SEM is a hybrid model that integrates path analysis and factor analysis. SEM is related to factor analysis because it may be used to test hypothesized relationships between unmeasured or latent variables and observed or empirical indicators of latent variables. SEM is related to path analysis because it may be used to test hypothesized relationships between constructs. Thinking of SEM as a combination of factor analysis and path analysis ensures consideration of SEM's two primary components: the measurement model and the structural model.

Keywords:   SEM, causal modeling, covariance structure analysis, statistical analysis, factor analysis, path analysis, measurement model, structural model
