Page 24 Since it was assumed that the qi's are measured as deviations from their means, qij = COV(qi,qj) and qii = COV(qi,qi ) = VAR(qi). , Q = Q'). Matrices such as Q are called variance/covariance matrices, or simply covariance matrices. A number of definitions and assumptions can now be stated. 1. The population covariance matrix for the observed variables contained in x is defined as S = E(xx'), a (q × q) symmetric matrix. The (i,j)th element of S, sij, is the population value of the covariance between xi and xj, and can be defined as sij = E(xixj).
However, if there is an effect of the method of measurement, then each observed variable would load on both the factor for that particular trait and the factor for the particular method used. The MMMT model attempts to disentangle the effects of different substantive concepts from the methods of measurement used to measure those concepts. This model can be easily formulated as a confirmatory factor model, as our next example illustrates. For more details on the MMMT model, see Alwin (1974); Kenny (1979); and Sullivan and Feldman (1979).
