Of course, this regression is one of the simplest models we will discuss, and we hope that it will become clear that not all SEM calculations are so easy, but they all use this same basic logic. The initial SEM treatment by Goldberger (1973) considered a first alternative to the original model—the potential biases due to a missing predictor in a SEM.
Skewness or kurtosis) are assumed not to be critical. Although this should be seen as a severe limitation, this is also true of many other popular data analysis techniques, such as multiple regression and ANOVA, principal components and factor analysis, and canonical correlation and canonical regression. We can now view SEM as simply a natural generalization of this work. EXAMINING SEM THEORIES Given these statistical limits, many scientific theories can be represented as testable models. Most importantly, SEM gives researchers a way to represent theories as models using latent variables that are not directly measured.
