multiple group modelling in SEM! help!

Hello!

 

Can anybody help me with the following multiple group question.

 

In my Structural Equation Model, I want to make a difference between men and women. So I looked for the right syntax statement en found the following:

 

proc calis data = ...;

group 1 = <datafile>

group 2 = < datafile >

model 1 / group = 1;

              < model specifications>

model 2/ group = 2;

              < model specifications>

run;

 

My question is: if for example the effect of var 1 --> var 2 = 0,7 for women (model 1)  and the same effect (var 1 --> var 2) for men = 0,3. Can I make the conclusion that the effect of var 1 --> var 2 is significant higher for women than for men? So can I say that the effects differs significantly?

Or do you need to use another syntax?

 

Thanks for the help!!
