This chapter describes when and how to conduct a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). CFA is a step in the scale development process, and it is also the first step in testing structural models. Therefore, all researchers using a latent variable analysis approach must have an understanding of CFA, whether or not they are developing and testing a new scale. CFA is also compared to exploratory factor analysis (EFA).

Keywords:   structural equation modeling, SEM, social work research, confirmatory factor analysis, exploratory factor analysis
