A Bayesian Criterion-based Statistic for Model Selection of Structural Equation Models with Ordered Categorical data

Yunxian Li and Aijing Yang

Abstract—In this paper, a Bayesian criterion-based method called the Lv measure, as well as its calibration distribution, is introduced and applied to model selection of structural equation models with ordered categorical data. A simulation study is presented to illustrate the satisfactory performance of the Lv measure in model selection. A quality of life data is analyzed for illustration.

Index Terms—ordered categorical data; Lv measure; Model selection; MCMC algorithm.
