Analyzing data with structural equation modeling pays off in many fields of social science: Structural equation models can analyze relationships among constructs, i.e. variables that are not directly observable (intelligence, job satisfaction, attitudes, etc.), but which may be inferred from observed data, e.g. questionnaire items or behavioral measures.

We will discuss basic concepts of structural equation modeling and learn how to analyze structural equation models in practice, using the free statistics environment R (r-project.org) and the R package lavaan (lavaan.org) for several in-class exercises. Lavaan offers a user-friendly interface for model definition and analysis, combined with comprehensive statistical capabilities for a multitude of research settings. The workshop will focus on basic models from an applied perspective, covering model fit criteria, tests of parameters, handling nonnormally distributed data and missing data.

Ways of approaching and designing evaluations of policies and other complex programs. Attendees will work through the issues and dilemmas brought by fellow participants to the workshop. The focus will be on practical issues encountered in developing and designing own evaluations, with a general discussion in the group of the options and ways forward.
