Preliminary SEM Data Analysis
The Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) model specified one second-order
factor: information sources (IS), as well as four first-order factors: destination image
(DI); socio-cultural preferences (SCP); travel...

constructs exceeded the critical value. Measurement theory suggested that the
relationships among items were logically connected to the relationships of items to...

SEM Data Analysis
Structural equation modeling (SEM) was used to examine the hypothesized
relationships among the constructs in the study. The hypothesized models were...

Printers are an important peripheral device on larger digital systems like
personal computers. They are an increasingly popular accessory for PDAs and cells
phones, particularly those that offer fax capabilities.

Structural Model Results
To examine the goodness-of-fit of the hypothesized model, the measurement
model was re-specified by imposing the structure of each model (see Figure...
