LISREL Examples

LISREL can be used to fit:

  • measurement models,
  • structural equation models based on continuous or ordinal data,
  • multilevel models for continuous and categorical data using a number of link functions,
  • generalized linear models based on complex survey data.

Additional statistical analyses than can be performed include, to name a few:

  • exploratory factor analysis (EFA),
  • multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA),
  • logistic and probit regression,
  • censored regression,
  • survival analysis.
