Table 4 Comparison of the factor loadings (regression weights), depicting the unstandardized parameter estimates for the measurement models derived from sub-samples A and B using the Maximum Likelihood versus the Bayesian estimation methods

From: Validation of the Schieman and Young measurement scales for work contact, work-family conflict, working conditions, psychological distress and sleep problems in construction industry professionals
