Structural equation modeling (SEM) is widely used in various disciplines. In the tourism discipline SEM has not been frequently applied. This paper explains the concept of SEM using the Lisrel (Linear Structural Equations) approach: its major purpose, application, types of models, steps involved in formulation and testing of models, and major SEM computer software packages and their advantages and limitations.
