[…] on marginal sums of squares (type iii sum of squares). whenever necessary, log and trigonometric transforms were applied (supplementary materials)., a structural equation modeling (using the package lavaan 0.5-23.1097) approach, using maximum-likelihood estimation, was conducted in order to determine whether relevant factors, such as the tap 2-back task, wcst concept failures, scr, and rec […]

[…] contact details for support services. this study was approved by the human research ethics committees at the university of south australia., confirmatory factor analysis (cfa) was performed using “lavaan” package (rosseel, ; rosseel et al., ) for r software [r-core project (team rc., , ) in order to test the factorial structural model of the smi-ed based on prior empirical and theoretical […]

[…] and fit models by use of the structural equation modeling (sem) method on the forest graph (see figure in the results section). structural modeling was performed using latent variable analysis with lavaan-r package. model fitting was based on the correlation matrix (see table ) and indicators of fit (χ2 statistic) tested whether the model was consistent with the covariation pattern among […]

[…] effect on the incidence of zoonotic disease; hence, we used structural equation models as an integrated approach to estimate the structural correlation between variables by using the r package lavaan () with maximum likelihood estimation procedures., we thank sari c. cunningham for her valuable comments and help. we thank the hundreds of hunan provincial center for disease control […]

[…] were calculated to describe the demographic characteristics of the participants. the factor structures of the ais-8 and ais-5 were analyzed though confirmatory factor analysis using the package “lavaan” (version 0.5-23). to determine absolute fit indices, the chi-square goodness-of-fit index (χ2), the root mean square error of approximation (rmsea), and the standardized root mean square […]
