Abstract: Path analysis is a model class of structural equation modeling (SEM), which it describes causal relations among measured variables in the form of a multiple linear regression. This paper presents two estimation formulations, one each for confirmatory and exploratory SEM, where a zero pattern of the estimated path coefficient matrix can explain a causality structure of the variables. The original nonlinear equality constraints of the model parameters were relaxed to an inequality, allowing the transformation o…
