Effects of Ignoring Correlated Measurement Error in Structural Equation Models.
Reddy, Srinivas K.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v52 n3 p549-70 Fall 1992
Implications of ignoring correlated error on parameter estimates in some simple structural equation models are examined. It is shown analytically and empirically through simulation that ignoring positive between-construct correlated error overestimates the structural parameter linking the two constructs. Effects become more pronounced with decreasing reliability in measurement. (SLD)
