Current Research Interests

My current research interests can be grouped into three main areas
1. Quantitative psychology/sample size in latent variable modeling;
2. Statistical Reporting Procedures
3. Issues with developing, analyzing & interpretting survey data

Some Current Projects:
Jackson, D. L., Gillaspy, J. A., Purc-Stephenson, R., Voth, J., Boomsma, A. (manuscript preparation). Empirically-based suggestions for designing Monte Carlo studies of Confirmatory Factor Analytic Models.

Jackson, D. L., Frey, M., & Voth, J. (manuscript being revised). Model fit and sample size requirements for large confirmatory factor analytic models.
