What this Project Is

This project is a guide through Alan Acock’s Discovering Structural Equation Modeling Using Stata in R using the Tidyverse, and lavaan packages. The data needed to replicate the analyses in the book can be found on the book’s website here: Discovering Structural Equation Modeling Using Stata. My goal is to show how to fit these models in R and visualize their results.

This is also, ver much, a work in progress.

What this Project Isn’t

I assume that you have some familiarity with R and the tidyverse and won’t spend much time spend teaching you how to use R or tidyverse. I hope, however, that this project will help sharpen your existing R and tidyverse skills, and also develop your ability to fit structural equation models in R with lavaan.
