By extending the path analytic method, a new algorithm for causal modeling in epidemiological etiologies is developed, which is based mainly on simple correlation coefficients.
The utility of the proposed analysis is assessed, relative to cluster analysis, factor analysis, and multiple regression analysis. As the result of this evaluation, it is suggested that multivariate analysis should be used together with causal modeling, since multivariate analysis, especially factor analysis, appears to be a useful tool of confirming the estimated causal model.
