Hi,

I'd like to reproduce the meta-analytic structural equation modeling (MASEM) results from this study:

soonang[dot]com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/2007-MISQ-Ang1.pdf

I used the correlation matrix (Table 3, p. 559) as input and specified the paths according to Figure 2 (p. 560).

Additionally, I set the number of observations to 701 (p. 558).

The full openMx code is attached.

The openMx output for the parameter estimates fits the values in Figure 2 quite well.

However, the openMX fit statistics are quite different from the ones in the paper.

openMx: chi square = 2442.81, CFI = 0.27, RMSEA = 0.23

paper: chi square = 160.84, CFI = 0.95, RMSEA = 0.054 (p. 558)

Any idea why these values differ that much?

Thanks and best regards

lind0r
