The aim is to understand the modeling and analysis of causal relationships using so-called structural equation models, which play an important role in empirical social research. Using LISREL we will introduce the modeling of causal and latent structures on the basis of factor analysis and regression analysis. Based on a factor analysis to identify the latent variables, a measurement model for the analysis of the relationship between latent variables and indicators is derived. The last step is the validation of the model.
