cbsem: Simulation, Estimation and Segmentation of Composite Based Structural Equation Models

The composites are linear combinations of their indicators in composite based structural equation models. Structural models are considered consisting of two blocks. The indicators of the exogenous composites are named by X, the indicators of the endogenous by Y. Reflective relations are given by arrows pointing from the composite to their indicators. Their values are called loadings. In a reflective-reflective scenario all indicators have loadings. Arrows are pointing to their indicators only from the endogenous composites in the formative-reflective scenario. There are no loadings at all in the formative-formative scenario. The covariance matrices are computed for these three scenarios. They can be used to simulate these models. These models can also be estimated and a segmentation procedure is included as well.
