Subject:      AMOS ADF corrects Chi-Square?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

Hi all, A SEM query. Because my data set is large (n=2642) and violates the multivariate normality assumption, I used ADF estimation in AMOS instead of MLE. Does this mean I can use the Chi-square significance test? I know that large sample size will affect chi-square anyway, but was hoping the ADF would somehow correct the normality violation allowing the use of Hoelters (which gives the sample size at which Chi-square becomes non-significant - Hoelters=1454). Secondly would comparisons of groups using Chi-square difference be justified? Thanks,
