Abstract

In this work, we propose appropriate models for assessing the relationships among the observed items in quality of life (QoL) and satisfaction with life scale (SWLS) instruments using structural equation modeling (SEM). Generalized least square (GLS) method was used as against the most used maximum likelihood (ML) to generate the estimates for real life data with non-normal distribution. A detailed description of the confirmatory factor analysis, path diagram and SE models were recorded. We use an underlying non-normal distribution using generalized least square (GLS) estimation method with the statistical package AMOS version 21.

Résumé

Nous proposons des modèles appropriés pour établir des fonctionnelles entre objets observés par rapport à la qualité de vie et aux instruments de mesure d'échelle de satisfaction basées sur la méthode du maximum de vraisemblance en vue d'obtenir des estimations sur des données réelles non gaussiennes. Une description complète d'analyse de conformité factorielle, de diagrammes de parcours et de modèles SE est fournie.
