Seminar “Models of Structural Equations Applied to the Analysis of the Economic Growth of Portugal”

Cátia Rosário, CIPES researcher, will be the speaker at the Seminar “Models of Structural Equations Applied to the Analysis of the Economic Growth of Portugal”, on November 29, at 6:00 pm, in Room U.0.3, at the Campus of the Lusófona University, in Lisbon.

Structural equation models (MEE) are statistical models that allow the quantification of cause and effect relationships described by a theoretical model, bridging the regression analysis, path analysis and factor analysis. Its application to Portugal’s economic growth allows establishing the relationship between the Human Capital and Innovation dimensions and its direct and indirect impacts on the country’s economic growth.
