Principles of covariance structure analysis

Principles of covariance structure analysis

H.J.A. Hoijtink & J. de Jonge, Gedrag & Organisatie, volume 20, maart 2007, nr. 1, pp. 57-81

This paper is an introduction to covariance structure analysis (CSA). The ins and outs of this technique are explained by means of measurement models and structural models, using the Demand-Control Model of Karasek (1979) as a theoretical and empirical illustration. LISREL, Mplus, EQS and Amos are useful and accessible CSA-software. This paper explains the key evaluation points of CSA for the practical researcher. The comparison of competitive models, the use of several fit measures, and capitalization on chance was explained by means of cross-sectional survey data from two existing research studies. The article concludes with several critical notes as to using CSA, as well as with suggestions for literature concerning CSA.
