Partial least squares (PLS) path modeling is a variance-based form of structural equation modeling. It is frequently applied in business and social sciences to analyze complex causal-predictive models involving latent variables. PLS path modeling makes only soft assumptions with respect to the data distribution, and is relatively robust in case of small sample sizes.
