  1. Note. N = 4,640. a mean- and variance-adjusted X2-test statistic that uses a full weight matrix. The chi-square difference test for nested models is described in [BR06], pp. 394-396. b see methods section for further details on MIMIC modeling. TLI = Tucker-Lewis index. CFI = Comparative fit index. RMSEA = a Root-Mean-Square Error of Approximation. 90% CI = 90% confidence interval.
