Thanks for the reply and sorry for the mess.
My proposal is roughly about studying the causal relationship of social infrastructure project success factors and criteria. Social infrastructure project is like hospital and school.
Referring to the attachment (theoretical SEM framework), there are six measured variables:-
(i) Pre-construction factors
(ii) Construction factors
(iii) Post-construction factors
(iv) Other factors
(v) Client-contractor criteria
(vi) Public's satisfaction
The target respondent consist of 2 groups (construction players such as contractor and engineer with technical knowledge and public user such as students without technical knowledge.
My strategy is:- for measured variable (i)-(v) the target respondent is construction players, whereas for measured variable (vi) the target respondent is public user (students).
Is it possible for a causal framework using SEM consist of two different target respondents (construction players and students), given the indicators for both measured variable are different. My understanding of SEM is this situation is not multilevel structural equation modeling. Its not about subgroup such as male vs female. For multilevel SEM, each subgroup need to be asked the same questions. My case seems like a bit weird, different target respondent, different respondent being asked the different set of questions. Please help me out!!! Provide me some valuable comments please. Many many thanks.
