Structural Equation Modeling and Canonical Correlation Analysis: What Do They Have in Common?
This paper, in a fashion easy to follow, illustrates the interesting relationship between structural equation modeling and canonical correlation analysis. Although computationally somewhat inconvenient, representing canonical correlation as a structural equation model may provide some information which is not available from conventional canonical correlation analysis. Hierarchically, with regard to the degree of generality of the techniques, it is suggested that structural equation modeling stands to be a more general approach. For researchers interested in these techniques, understanding the interrelationship among them is meaningful, since our judicious choice of these analytic techniques for our research depends on such understanding. Three tables and two figures present the data. (Contains 25 references.) (Author)
