Description

This book is designed to introduce students to the basics of structural equation modeling through a conceptual, nonmathematical approach. The few mathematical formulas included are used in a conceptual or illustrative nature, rather than a computational one. The book features examples from LISREL and EQS. For that reason, the book can also be used as a beginning guide to learning how to set up input files to fit the most commonly used types of structural equation models with these programs. Intended as an introduction for graduate students or researchers in psychology, education, business, and other applied social and health sciences. The only prerequisite is a basic statistics course.
