Whereas many readers will be unusual with the entire complexity of the covariance constitution version, many could have mastered at the very least one among its elements - every one of that's a strong and recognized statistical process in its personal correct. the 1st is the confirmatory issue version usually utilized in psychometrics; the second one, the structural equation version, is wide-spread to econometricians. The dialogue during this quantity can be fairly helpful for estimating versions with equality constraints and correlated mistakes throughout a few yet now not all equations. the ultimate bankruptcy encompasses a advisor to acceptable software program applications.

Some examples are developed in several steps throughout a chapter. 2 appears several times in Chapter 3, the reader should realize that it is the development of the same example. Page 7 Preface This monograph presents a statistical model referred to variously as the covariance structure model, the analysis of covariance structures, the linear structural relations model, the moments structure model, latent variable equation systems in structured linear models, and (perhaps most commonly) the LISREL model.
2) B is a triangular matrix, in which case endogenous variables can affect one another, but if hj affects hi, then hi does not affect hj. 2 That is, if bij¹ 0, then bji = 0. (3) B has unrestricted elements above and below the diagonal. This allows any two endogenous variable to simultaneously affect one another. Thus, if hj affects hi, hi can also affect hj. If bij is not restricted to zero, bji may or may not be restricted to zero. Two forms of Y are of concern. (1) Y is diagonal. In this case, all of the errors in equations are uncorrelated.
