SEM with small samples in Lavaan: problems and solutions – Yves Rosseel

In this lecture, there will be two parts. In the first part, I will give an overview of issues that arise if small sample sizes are used in SEM: non-convergence, non-admissible solutions, biased estimates, and poor quality of standard errors and fit measures. In the second part, I will discuss several old and recent solutions to handle small samples in SEM in a more effective way.
