Description:
This text is a general introduction to the topic of structural analysis. It is an introduction because it presumes no previous acquaintance with causal analysis. It is general because it covers all the standard, as well as a few nonstandard, statistical procedures. Since the topic is structural analysis, and not statistics, very little discussion is given to the actual mechanics of estimation.
