participate in the survey. Additionally, readers of the Austria.info tourism e-newsletter
were invited by email to participate. Respondents were questioned on issues regarding
travel behavior including current traveling purpose (business or...
Structural equation modeling.
According to Hoyle (1995), structural equation modeling (SEM) is a
―comprehensive statistical approach to testing hypotheses about relations among
observed and latent variables‖ (p. 1). SEM is used to test the...
Variables for structural equation modeling can be either observed (measured
directly by the data) or latent. Latent variables are unobserved but are implied by the
relationships noted between multiple factors. The latent variables are stipulated...
(Hoyle, 1995). A model that is overidentified can have as many degrees of freedom
indicated by the variances and covariances less the number of free parameters (Hoyle,
1995). In effect, there is more than one way to calculate from the data a...
Evaluation of fit.
Once a model has been specified and estimated (the residual matrix minimized),
the fit of the model to the data must be evaluated. There are several indexes used to
evaluate the fit of a model. The chi-square goodness-of-fit...
evaluated either unstandardized or standardized. Unstandardized parameter estimates are
values produced by the model that can only be interpreted in reference to the scales of the
variables. Standardized parameter estimates are normalized...
2010. Of the total number of surveys collected, 212 were rejected for incompleteness or
respondents did not meet the residency or age requirements discussed; 973 were deemed
Data analysis methodology.
Evaluation of Fit section (Hoyle, 1995). SEM consists of several steps including model
specification, estimation, evaluation of model fit, model modification and interpretation
In the specification step, a...
direct and indirect effects of an independent variable on a dependent variable comprises
the total effect between the variables (Hoyle, 1995).
Identification is an important consideration in model specification. In essence,
implied covariance matrix and the observed matrix are used to calculate the residual
matrix. The smaller the residual matrix, the better the model estimation, thus iteration
continues until the residual matrix is minimized (Hoyle, 1995). This...
