We extend standard methodology for multigroup mean and covariance structure (MACS) analysis to the case where assessment of across-group variation of model parameters is the focus of the study and the data deviate from standard assumptions. The proposed methods are applied to analyze an accounting profitability database covering more than 100,000 firms in the 15 European Union (EU) countries in the period 1999 to 2003. A multivariate model with permanent and dynamic latent components of… CONTINUE READING
