CADOGAN, J.W. and LEE, N., 2016. Distinguishing valid from invalid causal indicator models. Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research & Perspectives, 14 (4), pp. 162-166.
We highlight the difference between valid causal indicator models, that provide useful information on the variance of theoretical latent variables, and invalid causal indicator models, which do not. We suggest that invalid causal indicator models are of the type typically used in the causal indicator literature, and urge for research to reflect on how to advance the use of valid causal indicator models.
