- 6 Thanks So Much!! • Acknowledgements: – Bill Pridemore PhD – Adam Perzynski PhD – David W. Baker MD – Randy Cebul MD – Fred Wolinsky PhD – No conflicts of interest (but I wish there were some major financial ones!)
- 7 Presentation Outline • Conceptual overview. – What is SEM? – Basic idea underpinning SEM – Major applications – Shared characteristics among SEM techniques • Terms, nomenclature, symbols, vocabulary • Basic SEM example • Sample size, other issues and model fit • Software and texts
- 8 What Is Structural Equation Modeling? • SEM: very general, very powerful multivariate technique. – Specialized versions of other analysis methods. • Major applications of SEM: • Causal modeling or path analysis. • Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). • Second order factor analysis. • Covariance structure models. • Correlation structure models.
- 9 Advantages of SEM Compared to Multiple Regression • More flexible modeling • Uses CFA to correct for measurement error • Attractive graphical modeling interface • Testing models overall vs. individual coefficients
- 10 What are it’s Advantages? • Test models with multiple dependent variables • Ability to model mediating variables • Ability to model error terms
- 11 What are it’s Advantages? • Test coefficients across multiple between- subjects groups • Ability to handle difficult data – Longitudinal with auto-correlated error – Multi-level data – Non-normal data – Incomplete data
- 12 Shared Characteristics of SEM Methods • SEM is a priori –Think in terms of models and hypotheses –Forces the investigator to provide lots of information • which variables affect others • directionality of effect
- 13 Shared Characteristics of SEM Methods • SEM allows distinctions between observed and latent variables • Basic statistic in SEM in the covariance • Not just for non-experimental data • View many standard statistical procedures as special cases of SEM • Statistical significance less important than for more standard techniques
- 14 Terms, Nomenclature, Symbols, and Vocabulary (Not Necessarily in That Order) • Variance = s2 • Standard deviation = s • Correlation = r • Covariance = sXY = COV(X,Y) • Disturbance = D • X Y D • Measurement error = e or E • A X E
- 15 Terms, Nomenclature, Symbols, and Vocabulary • Observed (or manifest) • Latent (or factors) • Experimental research • independent and dependent variables. • Non-experimental research • predictor and criterion variables
- 16 Terms, Nomenclature, Symbols, and Vocabulary • “of external origin” – Outside the model • “of internal origin” – Inside the model • Exogenous • Endogenous • Direct effects • Reciprocal effects • Correlation or covariance
- 17 Terms, Nomenclature, Symbols, and Vocabulary • Measurement model – That part of a SEM model dealing with latent variables and indicators. • Structural model – Contrasted with the above – Set of exogenous and endogenous variables in the model with arrows and disturbance terms

Multiple measures of socio-economic position and psychosocial health: proximal and distal measures. D1 D2 a= direct effect c b+c=indirect
- 21 What Sample Size is Enough for SEM? • The same as for regression* – More is pretty much always better – Some fit indexes are sensitive to small samples • *Unless you do things that are fancy!
- 22 What’s a Good Model? • Fit measures: – Chi-square test – CFI (Comparative Fit Index) – RMSE (Root Mean Square Error) – TLI (Tucker Lewis Index) – GFI (Goodness of Fit Index) – And many, many, many more –IFI, NFI, AIC, CIAC, BIC, BCC
- 23 How Many Indicators Do I Need? • That depends… • How many do you have? (e.g., secondary data analysis) • A prior concerns • Scale development standards • Subject burden • More is often NOT better
- 24 Software • LISREL 9.1 from SSI (Scientific Software International) • IBM’s SPSS Amos • EQS (Multivariate Software) • Mplus (Linda and Bengt Muthen) • CALIS (module from SAS) • Stata’s new sem module • R (lavaan and sem modules)
