Author(s)
Julian Aichholzer
Abstract

jrule is a postestimation tool for the sem command, using stored results from estat mindices. It provides judgement rules for potential misspecifications based on the power of the Modification Index (MI) or score test in combination with the Expected Parameter Change (EPC). jrule makes use of the recommendations and formulae provided by Saris et al. (2009) and Van der Veld et al. (2008). The jrule command prints decision rules on possible misspecifications following their scheme.
