Abstract

As we indicated in Section 4.3, model detail can be considered from different angles. In this chapter we concern ourselves with the amount of behavioral detail a model contains. The “amount of behavioral detail” is not easily measured. Therefore, we use qualitative descriptions for a comparison of models in terms of behavioral detail. A higher level of behavioral detail usually implies that the model contains a larger number of variables, especially intervening variables (see Figure 10.1). It also tends to mean more equations and more parameters to estimate.
