Error in Variables: Analysis of Covariance Structure – Structural Equation Models

In this chapter, we bring together the notions of measurement error discussed in Chaps. 3 and 4 with the structural modeling of simultaneous relationships presented in Chap. 6. We demonstrate that a bias is introduced when estimating the relationship between two variables measured with error if that measurement error is ignored. We then present a methodology for estimating the parameters of structural relationships between variables that are not observed directly: analysis of covariance structures. We focus on the role of the measurement model as discussed in Chap. 4 with the confirmatory factor analytic model.
