The Benefits of Structural Equation Modeling for Developing and Testing Corporate Social Performance Theory
Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 18:121-125 (2007)
AbstractStudies of corporate social performance (CSP) research indicate the critical importance of research design and methodology in developing and testing CSP theories. In this paper we analyze data from a study of environmental performance in the U.S. wine industry to demonstrate how the research methodologies can cause researchers to reach different theoretical conclusions from the same data. We conclude that structural equation modeling (SEM) offers CSP researchers valuable tools that can accommodate critical theory development needs
