The Performance of ML, GLS, and WLS Estimation in Structural Equation Modeling under Conditions of Misspecification and Nonnormality.
Olsson, Ulf Henning; Foss, Tron; Troye, Sigurd V.; Howell, Roy D.
Structural Equation Modeling, v7 n4 p557-95 2000
Used simulation to demonstrate how the choice of estimation method affects indexes of fit and parameter bias for different sample sizes when nested models vary in terms of specification error and the data demonstrate different levels of kurtosis. Discusses results for maximum likelihood (ML), generalized least squares (GLS), and weighted least squares (WLS) methods. (SLD)
