Structural equation models (MEE) are statistical models that allow the quantification of cause and effect relationships described by a theoretical model, bridging the regression analysis, path analysis and factor analysis. Its application to Portugal’s economic growth allows establishing the relationship between the Human Capital and Innovation dimensions and its direct and indirect impacts on the country’s economic growth.
