General distress as second order latent variable estimated through PLS-PM approach


The aim of the paper is to present a Partial Least Squares Path Modeling based on high-order latent variables to analyze the concept of General Distress. In order to depict General Distress concept, two approaches to second order construct modeling are presented and compared: the repeated indicators and the two-step approach. It is shown how to implement the two estimation approaches and a comparative study is proposed.
