Webinar: Structural equation modeling using Stata


Duration: 1 hour
Where: Join us from anywhere!
Cost: Free—but registrations are limited

Structural equation models (SEMs) can model a wide range of hypotheses. They can include latent constructs, such as depression, and their measurement models. Observed and latent variables can be modeled as both predictors and outcomes simultaneously, which is particularly useful for mediation analysis and longitudinal analysis.

We introduce you to SEM in Stata. You will learn about Stata's sem and gsem commands. You will see how they can be used to fit some common models, such as confirmatory factor models and regression models, and how they can fit models with both measurement and structural components. We will discuss SEM for continuous, categorical, ordinal, count, and other outcomes. We will work examples of multilevel and multigroup SEMs. You will also learn about tools for evaluating model fit.

How to join

The webinar is free, but you must register to attend. Registrations are limited so register soon.

We will send you an email prior to the start of the course with instructions on how to access the webinar.
