This comprehensive Second Edition offers readers a complete guide to carrying out research projects involving structural equation modeling (SEM). Updated to include extensive analysis of AMOS' graphical interface, a new chapter on latent curve models and detailed explanations of the structural equation modeling process, this second edition is the ideal guide for those new to the field. The book includes: Learning objectives, key concepts and questions for further discussion in each chapter. Helpful diagrams and screenshots to expand on concepts covered in the texts. Real life examples from a variety of disciplines to show how SEM is applied in real research contexts. Exercises for each chapter on an accompanying companion website. A new glossary. Assuming no previous experience of the subject, and a minimum of mathematical knowledge, this is the ideal guide for those new to SEM and an invaluable companion for students taking introductory SEM courses in any discipline. Niels J. Blunch was formerly in the Department of Marketing and Statistics at the University of Aarhus, Denmark
This student orientated guide to structural equation modeling promotes theoretical understanding and inspires students with the confidence to successfully apply SEM. Assuming no previous experience, and a minimum of mathematical knowledge, this is an invaluable companion for students taking introductory SEM courses in any discipline. Niels Blunch shines a light on each step of the structural equation modeling process, providing a detailed introduction to SPSS and EQS with a focus on EQS' excellent graphical interface. He also sets out best practice for data entry and programming, and uses real life data to show how SEM is applied in research. The book includes: Learning objectives, key concepts and questions for further discussion in each chapter. Helpful diagrams and screenshots to expand on concepts covered in the texts. A wide variety of examples from multiple disciplines and real world contexts. Exercises for each chapter on an accompanying companion website. A detailed glossary. Clear, engaging and built around key software, this is an ideal introduction for anyone new to SEM. Available with Perusall—an eBook that makes it easier to prepare for class Perusall is an award-winning eBook platform featuring social annotation tools that allow students and instructors to collaboratively mark up and discuss their SAGE textbook.

New to This Edition *Extensively revised to cover important new topics: Pearl' s graphing theory and SCM, causal inference frameworks, conditional process modeling, path models for longitudinal data, item response theory, and more. *Chapters on best practices in all stages of SEM, measurement invariance in confirmatory factor analysis, and significance testing issues and bootstrapping. *Expanded coverage of psychometrics. *Additional computer tools: online files for all detailed examples, previously provided in EQS, LISREL, and Mplus, are now also given in Amos, Stata, and R (lavaan). *Reorganized to cover the specification, identification, and analysis of observed variable models separately from latent variable models. Pedagogical Features *Exercises with answers, plus end-of-chapter annotated lists of further reading. *Real examplesof troublesome data, demonstrating how to handle typical problems in analyses.
This book provides full coverage of the wide range of multivariate topics that graduate students across the social and behavioral sciences encounter, using a conceptual, non-mathematical, approach. Addressing correlation, multiple regression, exploratory factor analysis, MANOVA, path analysis, and structural equation modeling, it is geared toward the needs, level of sophistication, and interest in multivariate methodology that serves students in applied programs in the social and behavioral sciences. Readers are encouraged to focus on design and interpretation rather than the intricacies of specific computations.
