Structural equation modeling SEM includes a diverse set of mathematical models, computer algorithms, and statistical methods that fit networks of constructs to data. Structural equation models are often used to assess unobservable 'latent' constructs. They often invoke a measurement model that defines latent variables using one or more observed variables , and a structural model that imputes relationships between latent variables.
Niepodleglosci 10, Poznan, Poland. This paper is a tribute to researchers who have significantly contributed to improving and advancing structural equation modeling SEM. It is, therefore, a brief overview of SEM and presents its beginnings, historical development, its usefulness in the social sciences and the statistical and philosophical theoretical controversies which have often appeared in the literature pertaining to SEM.

Kim, Sturman, and Kim clearly hold a positivist ideology. They explain how to design a study for a within-group factor comparison unit of analysis research strategy. This is an excellent discussion of the best practices for applying structural equation modeling SEM. SEM is usually inductive in principle, although confirmatory factor analysis the first phase of SEM is deductive since it measures the reliability of an a priori construct using the sample data. They use applied examples drawn from their own studies. Unable to display preview. Download preview PDF.

Structural equation modeling SEM is a statistical analytic framework that allows researchers to specify and test models with observed and latent or unobservable variables and their generally linear relationships. From a technical perspective, SEM was developed as a mixture of two statistical fields—path analysis and data reduction. Path analysis is used to specify and examine directional relationships between observed variables, whereas data reduction is applied to uncover unobserved low-dimensional representations of observed variables, which are referred to as latent variables. Since two different data reduction techniques i. In factor-based SEM, in which the psychometric or psychological measurement tradition has strongly influenced, a common factor represents a latent variable under the assumption that each latent variable exists as an entity independent of observed variables, but also serves as the sole source of the associations between the observed variables. Conversely, in component-based SEM, which is more in line with traditional multivariate statistics, a weighted composite or a component of observed variables represents a latent variable under the assumption that the latter is an aggregation or a direct consequence of observed variables. The textbook comprises pages structured into eight chapters.

Many problems in ecology and evolutionary biology require understanding of the relationships among variables and examining their relative influences and responses. For example, over the last few decades ecologists have been trying to quantify the relative importance of top-down control by predation and herbivory vs. Rather than arguing which of these forces are more important, we can examine the relative importance of each and how these forces interact to influence food web dynamics.
