CMI Short Courses
Structural Equation Models (SEM) amalgamate regression analysis, path/mediation analysis and factor analysis, allowing for more richly detailed statistical models to be specified and compared to data than by using these techniques individually.
Historically, SEM models were confined to the analysis of continuous observed data, limiting their usefulness in applied social research, where many phenomena are inherently discrete or are measured only with coarse-grained instruments.
Advances in recent years have made available SEM methods for categorical data to applied researchers. This course covers both linear SEM and generalized SEM for non-continuous outcomes, as well as models with non-continuous latent variables, i.e. latent classes.
