Calculate the model-implied indicator or construct variance-covariance (VCV) matrix. Currently only the model-implied VCV for recursive linear models is implemented (including models containing second order constructs).
Logical. Should a saturated structural model be used?
Character string. Which model-implied correlation matrix should be calculated? One of "indicator" or "construct". Defaults to "indicator".
Either a (K x K) matrix or a (J x J) matrix depending on the
Notation is taken from Bollen (1989)
.saturated = TRUE the model-implied variance-covariance matrix is calculated
for a saturated structural model (i.e., the VCV of the constructs is replaced
by their correlation matrix). Hence: V(eta) = WSW' (possibly disattenuated).
