Hi!

I am in a learning phase for SEM and was wondering which are the best fit statistics to consider while judging a model fit. I know that SEM programs produce a variety of model fit indices and wanted to understand which ones deserve more weightage. I would appreciate some thoughts on this topic.

Thanks!

This page from Kenny is a great, up to date summary.

I linked to it out of a blog post comparing Lavaan to OpenMx: So worth noting that there's information in the package help and guides for Lavaan and for sem also.
