Structural Equation Modelling
Start Date: 7/19/2019Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 7/19/2019End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description:

Structural equation modelling (SEM) is a statistical technique that encompasses multiple linear regression, path analysis, factor analysis and causal modelling with latent variables in a unified framework. Health and social scientists as well as market researchers can use SEM to create powerful models that explain various aspects of human behaviours, from well-being to social attitudes and consumer behaviour.

This course covers the main background principles of SEM, preparing data for SEM, model-building strategies, and applications of SEM in health and social sciences.

It also covers different techniques that are part of the SEM "family":

  • path analysis
  • confirmatory factor analysis
  • structural regression models
  • cross-lagged structural equation modelling

SEM analyses will be demonstrated in two popular SEM programs: Mplus (a command driven interface) and Amos (with a graphical user interface).

This course is a part of a series offered by the Laurier Summer Institute of Research Methods. You can register for this course and others running from July 15 to 26. Students (from any university) get 10% off. Faculty, staff and students paying by internal transfer also save on the tax.
