The Robustness of LISREL Estimates in Structural Equation Models with Categorical Variables.
Ethington, Corinna A.
Journal of Experimental Education, v55 n2 p80-88 Win 1987
This study examined the effect of type of correlation matrix on the robustness of LISREL maximum likelihood and unweighted least squares structural parameter estimates for models with categorical variables. The analysis of mixed matrices produced estimates that closely approximated the model parameters except where dichotomous variables were skewed in opposite directions. (Author/JAZ)
