This Chapter discusses the empirical findings of the hypothesized model. It is divided into four sections. The first section focuses on the descriptive statistics of the variables. The second section assesses the parameters of the measurement model, in particular the reliability of the variables and the factor loadings on the constructs. The estimates of the structural parameters of the model are presented in the third section. Section four provides discussions on the estimates of the alternative model. Structural equation modeling (SEM) is used to test the hypothesized model. SEM is a modeling technique that can handle a large number of endogenous and exogenous variables as well as latent variables. It is considered to lend to causal interpretations of observational data. Three variables are used to measure economic development (ECOD): percent of population urbanized, percent of population with access to safe water, and percent of population using adequate sanitation facilities.
