Date first presented

June 2022 Virtual Workshop


This video presents the basic rules used for path tracing in structural equation modeling, which is the basis for developing basic and more complex twin models. By the end of the video, students will be able to: (1) identify the advantages of applying path tracing rules and their use in structural equation models, (2) summarize the basic path tracing rules, and (3) apply basic path tracing rules to derive the expected parameters generated from simple regression models of unrelated individuals as well as basic twin models
