Table 6 Goodness of fit index and comparative fit indices for the doping opinion model depicted in Figures 3 and 4

From: Methodological considerations regarding response bias effect in substance use research: is correlation between the measured variables sufficient?

Fit index Good fit/Cut-off SD effect at the individual indicator measures SD as an independent predictor variable
Overall fit p > 0.05 χ2 = 25.1 df = 11, p = .009 χ2 = 22.916, df = 13, p = .043
  χ 2 /df <3 χ2/df = 2.283 χ2/df = 1.763
