Cov(2, 4)=Cov(3, 4)=0

Mesurement models and maximum likelihood

Now, analyze this model using EQS...

iterations for maximum

likelihood

With latent variable models,

if the starting values are too

far from the real ones, one

will get “convergence” problems

- local minima.

Mesurement models and maximum likelihood

Structural equations used by EQS:

10 /EQUATIONS

11 V1= + 1F1 + E1;

12 V2= + 1*F1 + E2;

13 V3= + 1*F1 + E3;

14 V4= + 1*F1 + E4;

15 /VARIANCES

16 F1= 100*;

17 E1= 0.01*;

18 E2= 0.1*;

19 E3= 10*;

20 E4= 100*;
