Fit Structural Equation Models

The Structural Equation Models platform is available only in JMP Pro.

The Structural Equation Models platform enables you to fit a variety of models. These models include confirmatory factor analysis, path models with or without latent variables, measurement error models, and latent growth curve models. You can specify the model by selecting From and To variables and indicating how they are linked. The link is represented by either a unidirectional or a bidirectional arrow in the diagram. These selections populate two alternative views of the model: a dynamic path diagram and a list of model edges. The platform also checks for model identification as you specify the model.
