WHY USE EQS?
EQS SETS A NEW STANDARD
Already known for combining technical sophistication with ease of use, EQS
makes structural equations modeling even easier with Diagrammer,
EQS' new model drawing tool!
NEW DIAGRAMMER MAKES MODELING EASY!
Make just a few clicks on the mouse and you can draw presentation-quality
diagrams. Once your model is drawn, choose Build EQS from the
scroll-down menu and EQS runs your model, based on the diagram. Use
of command language is no longer necessary! When you are
ready to present results, simply print the diagram directly or cut and paste
into your favorite word processor for final production.
IMPROVED WORKFLOW WITH EQS
EQS features everything one would expect from a
Windows application with point and click features for quick access to any EQS
test. Data preparation and evaluation that previously had to be done
with other programs is now handled seamlessly and efficiently within
EQS. Simply enter data directly into EQS' Spreadsheet Editor, import
via standard formats (dBase, Lotus, etc.), or cut and paste data (raw data,
correlation matrix, etc.) from another package. In the spreadsheet
users can easily transform variables, edit data, or perform exploratory
factor analysis to create an automatic model setup.
RANGE OF MODELING FEATURES
EQS tests the full range of structural equations models including multiple regression, multivariate regression, confirmatory factor
analysis, structured means analysis and multiple population
comparisons. EQS also includes polyserial and
polychoric correlations for treating categorical
data, the Satorra-Bentler scaled chi-square
statistic, enhancements to the RETEST and WTEST options, and the ability to
import weight matrices.
EXTENSIVE STATISTICAL AND PLOTTING OPTIONS
EQS combines statistical analysis capabilities (descriptive, t tests, ANOVA,
multiple and stepwise regression, etc.) with data exploration plots (scatter plot, histogram, matrix plot, pie chart, multiple plot, etc.) to provide
researchers with coordinated algebraic as well as graphical views of their
data. Insights gained from these views will help users to efficiently
formulate an optimal model. There is no need to switch between
different software packages to perform various analyses, allowing users more
time to focus on their model.
PREFERRED BY RESEARCHERS WORLDWIDE
EQS currently serves thousands of researchers in psychology, education,
economics, market research, sociology, and other fields utilizing structural
equations modeling techniques. Once you have tried EQS, you will agree
that it provides researchers with greater ease of use than any other
structural equations modeling package available.
