DETERM Statement

  • DETERM | STRUCTEQ variables </ option>;

where option represents: LABEL | NAME= name

The DETERM statement is used to compute the determination coefficient of the listed dependent variables in the model. The precursor of the DETERM statement is the STRUCTEQ statement, which enables you to define the list of the dependent variables of the structural equations. Because the term structural equation is not defined in a unique way, a more generic concept of determination coefficients is revealed by the DETERM statement.

You can specify the DETERM statement as many times as you want for computing determination coefficients for the sets of dependent variables of interest. You can label each set of dependent variables by using the LABEL= option. Note that you cannot use the DETERM statement in an MSTRUCT model because there are no dependent variables in this type of model.
