In order to provide different structural equations in this study, due to the nonlinearity of the relationship in equation, different structures will be offered to determine the coefficients a and b.
When conducting structural equations modeling (SEM) with categorical data, the analysis must be based on the correct correlations, the polychoric correlation matrix.
Thus, the causal relationships in a hypothesized mediation process, the simultaneous nature of the indirect and direct effects, and the dual role the mediator plays as both a cause for the outcome and an effect of the intervention are more appropriately expressed using structural equations than using regression analysis.

If they did oppose structural equations, instrumental variables, and observational studies, it must have been due to an unfortunate rhetorical distinction or, perhaps, a fluke in the history of science.
The inhibitory function of the negative affect on self-regulation was further tested using Structural Equations Modeling.
Therefore, a structural equations model that analyzed the relationships been interest in athletes' input and praise for autonomous behavior, basic psychological need for autonomy, intrinsic motivation, and intention to be physically active in the future was designed.

Support for these hypotheses was found with membership data for IGTOs in panel regression analysis and structural equations model with latent factors.
The publication of Leslie Hayduk's Structural Equation Modelling with LISREL (in 1987) and Ken Bollen's slightly more popular Structural Equations with Latent Variables (in 1989) marked a watershed in this area; prior to this time, investigators relied on word of mouth instructions, and the terse assistance of the software manuals to learn how to construct models (1) .
