lavaan.survey: lavaan.survey An R package for complex survey analysis of structural equation models

Daniel Oberski

Fit structural equation models (SEM) including factor analysis, multivariate regression models with latent variables and many other latent variable models while correcting estimates, standard errors, and chi-square-derived fit measures for a complex sampling design. Incorporate clustering, stratification, sampling weights, and finite population corrections into a SEM analysis. Wrapper around packages lavaan and survey.

You can install the current stable version of this R package from CRAN by doing install.packages("lavaan.survey") at the R command line. If you want the bleeding edge development version from GitHub, install devtools and do devtools::install_github("daob/lavaan.survey/lavaan.survey").
