This workshop will help participants develop skills in defining, estimating and testing plausible structural equation models. Attention will be paid to SEM submodels (path analysis and confirmatory factor analysis) as well as full structural equation models. Latent growth curves and multiple group analyses will also be introduced along with generalized structural equation models. This workshop is intended to be an introduction to structural equation modeling and will be conducted using Stata for Windows. Prior experience with Stata is not necessary and all of the concepts discussed in the workshop can be applied in other statistical software packages.
