I want to run the following MIMIC type model of labor supply with a latent variable modern by y1 y2 y3 y4 modern on c x1 x2 labor ON c modern x1 x2 x3 x4 The latent variable “modern” is a continuous variable labor is the dependent variable of interest and is binary The y’s are binary indicators; c is a constant; x1, x3 are vectors of binary variables; x2, x4 are vectors of continuous variables My questions are: a. Is the above formulation correct in terms of MPlus? b. Are there limitations on the y’s and x’s I can put in? c. Are there restrictions I should be imposing? 


a. You don't include the constant c as a variable. If c=1, that would imply an intercept which you get by default in Mplus. b. No important ones that I can think of. c. No.
