Urban planning research, like most behavioral sciences and human research, should be supported by a proper theoretical framework or conceptual model. In this theoretical framework and conceptual model, the variables and factors affecting the subject matter are identified and their relationships are determined. To assess the validity and correctness of these models, there are different qualitative and quantitative techniques and tools. Structural equation modeling is one of these quantitative and multivariate tools that examines and evaluates the fitting of the model and allows for some modifications in the model. In this paper, along with introducing the technique of modeling structural equations and Lisrel software, its application in urban planning research is described.
