Multiple indicators multiple causes (MIMIC) models (Joreskog & Golberger 1975) can be employed in a psychometric context to test for differential item functioning (DIF) between groups on the measurement of a latent variable (Muthén 1989). MIMIC DIF models can be attributed some favorable properties when compared to alternative DIF testing methods (i.e., Item Response Theory-Likelihood Ratio DIF) such as having generally small sample size requirements while simultaneously maintaining reliably… CONTINUE READING
