Easily perform structural equation modeling
IBM® SPSS® Amos enables you to specify, estimate, assess and present models to show hypothesized relationships among variables. The software lets you build models more accurately than with standard multivariate statistics techniques. Users can choose either the graphical user interface or non-graphical, programmatic interface.
SPSS Amos allows you to build attitudinal and behavioral models that reflect complex relationships. The software:

The SPSS Amos drag-and-drop user interface allows you to easily build a structural equation model in a visual manner.
Specify your model
Use drag-and-drop drawing tools to quickly specify your path diagram model. Click on objects in the path diagram to edit values, such as variable names and parameter values. Or simply drag variable names from the variable list to the object in the path diagram to specify variables in your model.
Select analysis properties
Select the analysis properties you wish to examine, such as standardized estimates of parameters or squared multiple correlations. Constrain parameters for more precise models by directly specifying path coefficients.
SPSS Amos output provides standardized or un-standardized estimates of covariances and regression weights as well as a variety of model fit measures. Hotlinks in the help system link to explanations of the analysis in plain English.
Assess your model's fit
Make any modifications to your model and print publication-quality output. We recommend complementing the rich functionality of SPSS Amos by using it with IBM SPSS Statistics Base.
