interaction terms

Hello!

 

I'm doing a structural equation model with in this case one latent variabele 'SES' and a lot of independent manifest variables and my dependent variable 'alcohol' is also manifest. So I want to make an interaction term between my latent variabele 'SES' and alcohol consumption so that I can see if for example variabele 15 has an effect at this interactionterm (what is the effect of variabele 15 on alcoholconsumption (dependent manifest var) and how does this effect differs between the different SES groups). Now I'm using a proc calis statement with the LINEQS statement:

 

PROC CALIS DATA = ..:

LINEQS

F1 = ...

F2 = ....

 

 

But how can I define a interaction term between for example F1 (SES in this case) and the manifest variable 'alcohol'? 

 

Thank you very much for the help!!

 

Kind regards,
