An Alternative Two Stage Least Squares (2SLS) Estimator for Latent Variable Equations.
Bollen, Kenneth A.
Psychometrika, v61 n1 p109-21 Mar 1996
An alternative two-stage least squares (2SLS) estimator of the parameters in LISREL type models is proposed and contrasted with existing estimators. The new 2SLS estimator allows observed and latent variables to originate from nonnormal distributions, is consistent, has a known asymptotic covariance matrix, and can be estimated with standard software.
