Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) is a flexible modelling technique often used to fit models outside the traditional framework of regression. It can be used to combine factor analysis with regression techniques to explore and test conceptual or theoretical models.

This meeting will explore software for fitting SEMs (AMOS, LISREL, Mplus, R and Stata), looking at how the different packages carry out the modelling and their pros and cons.
