MLM: non-normal & missing PreviousNext

I am doing a path analysis and my data are not multivariate normal and have some missing (slightly less than 10%). I was trying to use MLM (Satorra-Bentler chi-square), but Mplus required to use LISTWISE=ON option.

Why is that required? Is there any article to support and articulate the listwise deletion when MLM is used? Thanks.

See the Yuan and Bentler paper. Missing data estimation has not been developed for MLM. You can use MLR instead if you don't want listwise deletion.
