A New Inferential Test for Path Models Based on Directed Acyclic Graphs.
Structural Equation Modeling, v7 n2 p206-18 2000
Introduces a new inferential test for acyclic structural equation models (SEM) without latent variables or correlated errors. The test is based on the independence relations predicted by the directed acyclic graph of the SEMs, as given by the concept of d-separation. A wide range of distributional assumptions and structural functions can be accommodated. (Author/SLD)
