  1. N = 215. Method: Maximum likelihood estimation. Indices of model fit. χ2 = Minimum Value of Discrepancy or Likelihood-Ratio Chi-Square Statistic, χ2/df = Relative Likelihood-Ratio Chi-Square Statistic, GFI = Goodness-of-Fit index, AGFI = Adjusted Goodness-of-Fit Index, IFI = Incremental Fit Index, TLI = Tucker-Lewis Index, CFI = Comparative Fit Index, and RMSEA = Root Mean Square Error of Approximation. PR = Parsimony Ratio, PGFI = Parsimonious Goodness-of-Fit index, and PCFI = Parsimonious Comparative Fit Index
