This dataset is designed for learning about Multi-Group Confirmatory Factor Analysis (MGCFA) using the AMOS software package. The dataset is a subset derived from the 2016 International Sponsorship Study (ISS 2016) conducted by researchers at Cardiff University. The example builds upon the confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) dataset in which a baseline CFA model for animosity and ethnocentrism was specified, tested, and validated. Here, we continue to establish whether any observed heterogeneity exists in the factorial structure of both latent variables attributable to gender (male vs. female). An invariance testing protocol is followed in testing for this. The dataset file is accompanied by a Teaching Guide, a Student Guide, and a How-to Guide for AMOS.
