OBJECTIVE To test the fit and stability of 3 alternative models of the metabolic syndrome's factor structure across 3 developmental stages. STUDY DESIGN With data from the Fels Longitudinal Study, confirmatory factor analyses tested 3 alternative models of the factor structure underlying relationships among 8 metabolic syndrome-associated risks. Models tested were a 1-factor model (A), a 4-factor model (B), and a second-order latent factor model (C). Developmental stages assessed were… CONTINUE READING
