I am doing an observed path analysis in Mplus and LISREL. I am trying to reproduce the independence null (baseline) chi-square that LISREL reports. Please tell me if this is the right way to have Mplus do it for the following model:
AM ON SES@0;
GPA ON AM@0 IQ@0;
SES;
IQ;
SES WITH IQ@0;

This allows estimation of all variances of DVs and IV's and fixes the covariance of IV's to 0.

However, I am unable to reproduce this in LISREL. I am using the following model commands: MO NY=2 NX=2 PH=DI,FR PS=DI,FR GA=FU,FI BE=FU,FI

Shouldn't the chi-squares match up?

Make sure that you have have the same number of parameters in each analysis. Mplus may correlate the residuals of am and gpa as the default.
