Confirmatory factor analysis for applied research.


Confirmatory factor analysis for applied research.

Brown, Timothy A.

Guilford Pr.


475 pages



Methodology in the social sciences


Brown (psychology, Boston U.) offers applied researchers and graduate students a practical guide to the underlying concepts and fundamental procedures of confirmatory factor analysis. The emphasis is on the practical and theoretical aspects of CFA, rather than on complicated mathematical proofs or formulas. Examples are provided from several different areas of the social and behavioral sciences. The five most popular latent variable software programs--Amos, EQS, LISREL, Mplus, SAS/CALIS--are featured throughout.
