On Desirability of Parsimony in Structural Equation Model Selection.
Raykov, Tenko; Marcoulides, George A.
Structural Equation Modeling, v6 n3 p292-300 1999
Discusses issues in structural-equation-model selection that pertain to the general utility of the principle of parsimony. Provides an example using data generated by the relatively nonparsimonious simplex model and fitted rather well by a parsimonious growth-curve model belonging to a different class of models.
