Application 10: Testing for Causal Predominance Using a Two-Wave Panel Model

Keeping in step with the mass migration from old world mainframe and DOS environment computing to new world computing within the Microsoft Windows environment, Joreskog and Sorbom (1993c) have adapted both the LISREL 8 and PRELIS 2 programs for use within this framework. One of the key features of this adaptation is the capability of the LISREL program to produce multiple aspects of any path diagram, accompanied by the appropriate estimates, modifications indices (MIs), or expected parameter change values. The purpose of this final chapter, therefore, is to present you with at least a flavor of what to expect when you use the LISREL and PRELIS programs within the Windows environment.
