Recursive models, Advanced Statistics

Recursive models are the statistical models in which the causality flows in one direction, that is models which include only unidirectional effects. Such type of models do not include circular effects or reciprocal causation, for instance, variable A influences the variable B, which in turn influences the variable A; nor do they permit feedback loops in which, say, variable A influences variable B, which influences variable C, which loops back to the influence variable A.
