Comment from the Stata technical group

The fourth edition of Principles and Practice of Structural Equation Modeling by Rex Kline, like previous editions, is an ideal text for both students and researchers who want to learn the fundamental concepts of structural equation modeling (SEM) and then apply it to their own data. Along with introducing different types of structural equation models, Kline carefully discusses practical issues, such as data preparation, assumptions, identification, and interpretation. Easy-to-follow examples use real data, and the book's website provides files demonstrating how to reproduce results using a variety of software packages, including Stata.

The book is divided into four parts. The first introduces basic features of SEM, reviews introductory statistical topics, discusses preparation of data, and gives an overview of statistical software packages for SEM. The second and third parts cover specification, identification, estimation, and hypothesis testing for path models, confirmatory factor models, and structural regression models. The last part of the book includes more advanced topics such as modeling means, latent growth curve models, multiple-group models, and interactions between latent variables. The final chapter provides advice on the best practices in SEM and common mistakes that should be avoided.

In the fourth edition, Kline adds new coverage of Judea Pearl's structural causal modeling, confirmatory factor analysis with ordinal indicators, bootstrapping, significance testing, and item response theory.
