Title: A Comparison of LISREL an PLS Estimations
Abstract: Economic theory models often use non-observable variables. Several estimating techniques have been developed for different latent variable models. This paper compares the properties of two alternative estimation techniques for latent variable models by Monte Carlo experiments. LISREL is a maximum likelihood estimation method, while PLS is based on least squares principle.
