Dear All, according to the Mplus approach (UG 230), in twolevel modeling xbj is the latent variable covariate used on the between level. I am interested in using these betweenlevel means for further analyses. How can I extract this information from the Mplus  is is stored in the sigma_bw matrix? Many thanks 


The sample statistics given for TWOLEVEL when a variable is not on the WITHIN or BETWEEN list would reflect the latent variable decomposition you refer to.

OK, but the output shows the overall mean only  what I would need would be the means for each betweengrop unit. Can such information be requested using output: sampstat? 


I am not sure I understand what you mean by each betweengroup unit. Do you want the mean for each cluster?

yes, ideally the mean for each cluster if this is possible 


This is not possible.
