How to Conduct Multigroup Analysis in AMOS: Comparing Subgroups

 Conducting multigroup analysis in AMOS allows you to compare subgroups within your data, examining whether a structural model fits different groups differently. Here is a concise guide:

  1. Data Preparation: Ensure your dataset is clean and organized and your grouping variable (e.g., gender, age) is appropriately coded.
  2. Launch AMOS: Open AMOS software and load your dataset.
  3. Model Setup: Create a structural equation model with your variables of interest, as you would for a single-group analysis.
  4. Define Subgroups: Specify which variable in your dataset will be used to split your sample into subgroups (e.g., gender).
  5. Set Up Multigroup Analysis: In AMOS, go to “Analysis” > “Multigroup Analysis.” Select your grouping variable and the groups you want to compare.
