Dear Dr. Muthen,
I have a question about Bayesian estimator in Mplus. I try to run sem from triangulation correlation matrix (I try focus on MASEM and want to use Bayesian estimator) but I have a problem when run data. Is it possible that I can run data from triangulation correlation matrix in Mplus?

ANALYSIS:
TYPE IS GENERAL;
ESTIMATOR IS bayesian;
ITERATIONS = 1000;
CONVERGENCE = 0.00005;
Model:
y3 on y1 y2 x2;
y1 y2 on x1 x2 x3;
OUTPUT: SAMPSTAT MODINDICES STANDARDIZED;
SAVEDATA:
RESULTS IS D:\;
*** ERROR in ANALYSIS command
Analysis with estimators ML, GLS, and ULS can use summary data.
All other estimators require individual data.

Thanks very much
Prayoonsri

No, you must use individual-level data.
