Greetings,
My data was running normally, until I added in a missing data indicator (-99). Using the indicator seems to have excluded three cases in my MLM. Each of these cases is only missing one observation (out of 8). Any idea how to get Mplus to not kick these cases out? Below is the warning that I got.
*** WARNING
Data set contains cases with missing on all variables except
x-variables. These cases were not included in the analysis.
Number of cases with missing on all variables except x-variables: 3
1 WARNING(S) FOUND IN THE INPUT INSTRUCTIONS

Thanks,
Jennifer Weston

If an observation has missing values on all dependent variables in the model, it has nothing to contribute to model estimation. The model is estimated conditioned on the x-variables.
