Measurement model: standardized factor loadings of observed variables (rectangles) on latent variables (ellipses). The loadings of 'Caregiving Demands' and 'Gross Income' were not estimated as a loading can not be estimated when there is a single indicator for a construct (not shown). Each construct (latent variables and two single indicators) is connected to every other by a curved, two-headed arrow, meaning that every construct is allowed to covary with every other construct.
