Product Description


"The impressive author list reads like a 'who's who' in Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) – and they cover all the major (and most of the minor) issues in the field. I highly recommend this handbook to researchers using SEM as the next book they need after reading one of the introductory texts. I like the hands-on approach in many of the chapters; in my view, there is no such thing as a superfluous example." - Joop J. Hox, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

"An exceptionally useful and comprehensive resource, the Handbook of Structural Equation Modeling covers all facets of this flexible approach to data analysis. Accessible to analysts in numerous scientific fields, it begins with foundational materials on model formulation and representation, continuing through estimation, assessment, and interpretation. With due attention to conceptual issues and matters of implementation alike, this handbook strikes an excellent balance between fundamentals, extensions, applications, and current innovations." - Peter V. Marsden, Harvard University, Massachusetts, USA 

"This cutting-edge book is an exceptionally ambitious scholarly masterpiece. Broad in scope, the many self-contained chapters cover the basics and extend SEM to the four corners of statistical analysis. This is a crucial contribution to the literature for behavioral and social scientists, applied statisticians and econometricians, and researchers in the business, education, and health disciplines." - Richard P. Bagozzi, University of Michigan, USA 

"An absolutely remarkable book. It spans every conceivable topic – from history to fundamentals to the most advanced topics under development – and brings together the leading scientists currently working in statistical design and analysis. The chapters are technically rigorous yet accessible to a broad audience. This is a great reference for all who are interested in SEM, whether novices or seasoned professionals." - Patrick J. Curran, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA

"In this welcome addition to the personal libraries of quantitative and applied researchers alike, Rick Hoyle brings considerable editorial skill to bear on the 40-chapter Handbook of Structural Equation Modeling. The breadth of topics covered in this reference text leaves little doubt that a firm grasp of data analysis with latent variables is essential to the advancement of scholarship in the social and behavioral sciences....An excellent resource for the many conceptual and analytical problems frequently encountered by researchers making use of SEM. About half of the chapters remain true to the Handbook's objective of accessibility to a novice readership (Chapters 1-4, 6-10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 19, 21, 22, 27-29, and 31), and several others are more suitable for readers with a modest background in latent variable modeling (Chapters 11, 14, 18, 20, 23, 25, 32, 34, and 36-40). A small number of chapters are suitable for advanced readers and those actively working in a quantitative discipline (Chapters 5, 30, 33, and 35). As a reference text, it is a strength of the Handbook that chapters vary in extent to which readers are presumed to possess statistical sophistication. As novice readers develop a deeper understanding of SEM fundamentals, the Handbook will continue to serve as a valuable reference for advanced applications....It is an impressive achievement that across 40 self-contained chapters and more than 75 authors there appeared very little unnecessary content overlap and no contradictory recommendations. Readers will find themselves returning to the Handbook again and again as a starting point for their work on virtually any topic currently within the broad reach of SEM." - Structural Equation Modeling (Andrea L. Howard, Vol. 20, No. 2, April 2013)

Good as a general reference but some of the chapters are better quality than others. Rather expensive but useful as a one source reference.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It give readers all aspects of SEM they need to know in order to apply the methodology in their research. It's also a great resource for those who teach SEM to graduate students. I recommend it to both students, researchers and academics who want to use SEM.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An amazing book. Covers a wide range of topics, including many ignored in other books. It covers software when appropriate (also ignored or only briefly touched on by many). I like to treat as a reference resource.

HASH(0x9be54234) out of 5 stars The must-have for SEM 18 Feb. 2013
By Scott B. Maitland - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An excellent book for all things related to SEM. A useful resource for teaching courses on the topic, especially when you are trying to include a chapter on particular topics rather than as a primary textbook.
HASH(0x9d3460d8) out of 5 stars Must Have Book on SEM 16 Nov. 2015
By Jim - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Excellent resource. The chapters on missing data and reporting results were particularly helpful. Although the chapters are written by various authors, they are of high quality and well selected. I highly recommend the Kindle edition. I thought I wanted the print edition, but needed the information quickly (faster than two days). I bought the Kindle edition and am glad I don't have the 740-page book. It is an e-textbook, which has more functionality than a standard Kindle ebook. I'm rather old-fashioned in some of my ways, but I'm surprised at how accessible the text was.
