Latent Variable Models and Factor Analysis: A Unified Approach
A unified approach showing how such apparently diverse methods as Latent Class Analysis and Factor Analysis are actually members of the same family of latent variable modeling from a statistical perspective is provided.
The Analysis and Interpretation of Multivariate Data for Social Scientists
This text concentrates on the multivariate methods so useful to social science problems involving correlational rather than causal relationships and requires use of a computer software package.
Factor Analysis of Ordinal Variables: A Comparison of Three Approaches
Four approaches to factor analysis of ordinal variables which take proper account of Ordinality are described and three of them are compared with respect to parameter estimates and fit and the issue of how to test the model and to measure model fit is discussed.
Analysis of Multivariate Social Science Data, Second Edition
When four of the leading researchers in the field of quantitative social sciences team up to write a book together, you can expect nothing less than a brilliant work. That is what the first edition…
Generalized latent trait models
A unified maximum likelihood method for estimating the parameters of the generalized latent trait model will be presented and in addition the scoring of individuals on the latent dimensions is discussed.
Analysis of Multivariate Social Science Data
This book discusses how to distinguish the latent class model from the latent trait model in Latent class analysis, cluster analysis, and latent profile analysis, as well as some potential applications.
Pairwise likelihood estimation for factor analysis models with ordinal data
IRT Modeling in the Presence of Zero-Inflation With Application to Psychiatric Disorder Severity
The authors demonstrate how the ZI mixture IRT method can be implemented in Mplus and present a simulation study comparing its performance with a standard IRT model assuming normality under different scenarios representative of psychiatric disorder symptom batteries.
Factor Analysis at 100:Historical Developments and Future Directions
Fact analysis at 100 historical developments and future directions can help you to solve the problem and can be one of the right sources to develop your writing skill.
Symmetric pattern models: a latent variable approach to item non‐response in attitude scales
This paper proposes a new approach to the treatment of item non‐response in attitude scales. It combines the ideas of latent variable identification with the issues of non‐response adjustment in…
