PROPCNSREG: Stata module fitting a measurement model with causal indicators
Maarten Buis ()
Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics
propcnsreg combines information from several observed variables into a single latent variable and estimates the effect of this latent variable on the depedent variable. These observed variables are so-called causal indicators (Bollen and Lennox, Psychological Bulletin 1991), that is, they influence the latent variable. It forms an alternative to factor analysis, which assumes that the latent variable influences the observed variables.
Requires: Stata version 11
