The Structural Equation Model
A general structural equation model is composed of (a) the measurement models linking the observed variables to the latent variables, i.e. constructs, and (b) the structural part linking the latent variables to each other using systems of simultaneous equations (Figure 11). The measurement models can also be distinguished from each other by specifying how the observed (independent) exogenous variables relate to the latent exogenous construct and the measurement models specifying how the observed (dependent) endogenous variables relate to the latent endogenous construct.
