Goodness-of-Fit Tests and Descriptive Measures in Fuzzy-Set Analysis

February 7, 2010

Scott R. Eliason and Robin Stryker Goodness-of-Fit Tests and Descriptive Measures in Fuzzy-Set Analysis Sociological Methods & Research 2009 38: 102-146.

In this article the authors develop goodness-of-fit tests for fuzzy-set analyses to formally assess the fit between empirical information and various causal hypotheses while accounting formeasurement error in membership scores. These goodness-of-fit tests, Read the rest of this entry »

An Empirical Evaluation of the Use of Fixed Cutoff Points in RMSEA Test Statistic in Structural Equation Models

February 7, 2010

Feinian Chen, Patrick J. Curran, Kenneth A. Bollen, James Kirby, and Pamela Paxton An Empirical Evaluation of the Use of Fixed Cutoff Points in RMSEA Test Statistic in Structural Equation Models Sociological Methods & Research 2008 36: 462-494.

This article is an empirical evaluation of the choice of fixed cutoff points in assessing the root mean square error of approximation (RMSEA) test statistic as a measure of goodness-of-fit in StructuralEquation Models. Using simulation data, Read the rest of this entry »
