More precisely, the thesis is organized in a progressive way as follows: Chapter 1 briefly presents the general framework of the model used throughout the thesis, and surveys the simulation methods that can be implemented to conduct Bayesian inference in this kind of model. Chapters 2 and 3 introduce some important theoretical variations extending the original setup presented in Chapter 1, and illustrate how factor structure models can be empirically applied to assess the importance of cognitive and noncognitive skills in explaining various outcomes of interest.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:alternative>Drei Aufsätze über Bayesianische Faktormodelle</dcterms:alternative> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Three Essays on Bayesian Factor Models</dcterms:title> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:43:41Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
