Books

On this page, we hope to provide lavaan syntax (or R syntax in general) to replicate the examples given in several books on structural equation modeling, factor analysis, latent variable analysis, and related methods.

If you have worked out the syntax for (many, perhaps not all) examples from a particular book that is not yet listed below, please contact me if you are willing to share your code on this page.
