1. Su, Yu. Testing the Effectiveness of the Muml Estimation Method for Dyadic Data in Multilevel Structural Equation Models.

Degree: MA, Research and Evaluation Methodology - Human Development and Organizational Studies in Education, 2014, University of Florida

Dyads, as one special case of hierarchical structured data, are common in social and educational research (e.g., married couples, twins, student partners). When multilevel structural equation modeling (MSEM) become a widespread analytic technique for analysis of nested or hierarchical structured data. However, practices associated with the employing of MSEM with extremely small group sizes (e.g., dyadic data) are problematic due to the lack of empirical research. At the same time, although pseudobalance approach (MUML) described by Muthen (1989, 1990) has been increasingly used to perform MSEM, little is known about how the complexity of extremely small cluster size affects MUML's performance. Therefore, in the current study, a Monte Carlo simulation was employed to investigate the performance of MCFA with dyadic data and to examine the accuracy of the MUML estimator, in terms of the parameter estimates, their standard errors and the global chi-square model fit. Multilevel sample data were generated in terms of 3 design factors: (a) intraclass correlation, (b) number of dyads and (c) model specification. Advisors/Committee Members: LEITE,WALTER LANA (committee chair).
