SEMsens: A Tool for Sensitivity Analysis in Structural Equation Modeling

Perform sensitivity analysis in structural equation modeling using meta-heuristic optimization methods (e.g., ant colony optimization and others). The references for the proposed methods are: (1) Leite, W., & Shen, Z., Marcoulides, K., Fish, C., & Harring, J. (in press). Using ant colony optimization for sensitivity analysis in structural equation modeling. Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal. (2) Harring, J. R., McNeish, D. M., & Hancock, G. R. (2017) <doi:10.1080/10705511.2018.1506925>; (3) Socha, K., & Dorigo, M. (2008) <doi:10.1016/j.ejor.2006.06.046>. We also thank Dr. Krzysztof Socha for sharing his research on ant colony optimization algorithm with continuous domains and associated R code, which provided the base for the development of this package.
