Covariance Structure Models: An Introduction to LISREL

  title={Covariance Structure Models: An Introduction to LISREL},
  author={J. Scott Long},
While many readers may be unfamiliar with the full complexity of the covariance structure model, many may have mastered at least one of its two components, each of which is a powerful and well-known statistical technique in its own right. The first is the confirmatory factor model frequently used in psychometrics; the second, the structural equation model, is familiar to econometricians. The discussion in this volume will be particularly useful for estimating models with equality constraints… 

An annotated bibliography for the study of structural equation modeling.

This review paper is intended for researchers and students who want to study and use SEM or covariance structure analysis described in books and articles published previously.

Univariate and Multivariate Specification Search Indices in Covariance Structure Modeling.

Abstract In previous studies of specification searches in covariance structure modeling, researchers have found the LISREL modification index to be an unreliable index of specification error, despite

A Brief Introduction to Structural Equation Models

This chapter is to present an introductory and user friendly account of the logic and application of structural equation modelling methods with this account being aimed at a perceived audience of epidemiologists and analysts who are aware ofStructural equation modelling techniques but who may be unsure about the application of these methods.

Analysis of Covariance Structures Applied to Family Research and Theory

Family research uses an increasing storehouse of multivariate methods. A major stream in these developments involves the analysis of covariance structures (ACS). ACS subsumes a variety of seemingly

Applications of covariance structure modeling in psychology: cause for concern?

A review of the personality and social psychology literature illustrates the nature of this and other problems in reported applications of covariance structure models.

Karl G. JSreskog presents the LISREL computer program, which will allow analysis of variables of any scale type and will be suitable for longitudinal research.

General Structural Equation Modeling

The most general structural equation models treated in this book are nothing more—and nothing less—than path analytical models (introduced in Chapter 1) that involve latent variables (discussed in

Can fit Indices be used to evaluate structural equation models

In recent years, many different fit indices have been formulated as an alternative for the standard likelihood ratio test (LRT) of Structural Equation Models (SEM). These fit indices were developed

Using LISREL: Some Notes on Technique and Interpretation.

The general LISREL model is explained along with methods for establishing the identification and goodness-of-fit of the overall model and its individual parameters and it is concluded that the most important aspect of LIS REL methodology is its flexibility.
