Abstract

The use of Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) in research has increased in psychology, sociology, education, and economics since it was first conceived by Wright (1918), a biometrician who was credited with the development of path analysis to analyze genetic theory in biology (Teo & Khine, 2009). In the 1970s, SEM enjoyed a renaissance, particularly in sociology and econometrics (Goldberger & Duncan, 1973). It later spread to other disciplines, such as psychology, political science, and education (Kenny, 1979).
