Figure 8.5 Structural Equation Models Launch Window 

For more information about the options in the Select Columns red triangle menu, see Column Filter Menu in Using JMP.

The Structural Equations Models platform launch window contains the following options:

Model Variables

The columns that you want to include in the model. You must specify at least one column. All columns must have numeric data type and continuous modeling type.


A column that creates a report consisting of separate analyses for each level of the variable. If more than one By variable is assigned, a separate analysis is produced for each possible combination of the levels of the By variables.

Caution: Using a By variable does not perform a multiple-group analysis.

Standardize Latent Variables

If selected, this option sets the scale of the latent variables by fixing their variance to one and allowing free estimation of all loadings.

Data Format

All of the columns specified in the Model Variables role must be numeric and continuous. The data should be in wide format. Rows that contain only missing values are excluded from the analysis.
