LISREL, an acronym for linear structural relations, is a statistical software package used in structural equation modeling (SEM) for manifest and latent variables. It requires a "fairly high level of statistical sophistication".[1]

History[edit]

LISREL was developed in the 1970s by Karl Jöreskog, then a scientist at Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey,[2] and Dag Sörbom, later both professors of Uppsala University in Sweden.[3] The most current version, as of August 2014, is LISREL 9.1.

Command language, graphical user interface and delivery[edit]

LISREL is mainly syntax-based, although recent versions have featured a graphical user interface (GUI).

SSI (Scientific Software International) has recently changed from e-Academy to a "home-built" solution for distributing the rental (6- or 12-month) versions of their software.
