Bridging Advanced Quantitative Methods and Applied Research in the Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences

BRIDGING ADVANCED QUANTITATIVE METHODS WITH APPLIED RESEARCH IN THE BEHAVORIAL, SOCIAL & HEALTH SCIENCES

Training

We currently offer workshops on Multilevel Modeling, Structural Equation Modeling, Structural Equation Models for Longitudinal Data, Mixture Models and Cluster Analysis, and Network Analysis. We also provide individually tailored instruction to groups with specific data analytic needs.

Consulting

We provide consulting services on each phase of the research process, from study design to the application and interpretation of quantitative methods. We offer several modes of consulting to suit a variety of needs.

Informing

We seek to provide you with the information and resources you need to be a knowledgeable user of quantitative methods, including tutorials on commonly used techniques, software demonstrations, discussion of common data analytic concerns, and updates on ongoing developments.

Do you have any materials that demonstrate how to estimate structural equation models using lavaan in R?

April 24, 2019
This is a question we often hear, particularly from students and junior researchers who don’t have access to sometimes expensive commercial software for fitting structural equation models. It is possible to estimate a wide array of SEMs, ranging from simple path models to fully latent SEMs to growth curve models and beyond, using the lavaan package within R. For those who may be interested, we have developed detailed demonstrations of how to estimate a broad class of SEMs using lavaan and these are now freely available for download. (more…)
