This workshop serves as an introduction to Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). SEM grows out and serves purposes similar to multiple regression, but in a more powerful way. SEM can handle nonlinearity, correlated dependents variable, multiple latent variables and the like. One of the attraction of SEM is its graphical modeling interface. In this workshop, the AMOS software will be used.

Course content include:

• Multivariate data structures

• Concepts and indicators

• Factor analysis

• Types of SEM models

• Assumptions in SEM

• Model fit assessments

• Building alternative models

• Path analysis

• Testing mediation effects

• Multi-group analysis


Dr. Karuthan Chinna has a Master Degree in Applied Statistics from the Michigan State University, USA and a PhD in Multivariate Quality Control from the Multimedia University, Malaysia. Dr. Karuthan Chinna has been teaching statistics for 35 years and is also very active in research and consulting. He has published two books; one on Biostatics and the other one on SPSS. He has been a statistical consultant for several projects at the Ministry of Health and other institutions.
