I have a 2-level model with 3 categorical variables on level 2. In order to differentiate their effects, I used effect coding like this d1 d2 x1 1 0 x2 0 1 x3 -1 -1
Mplus then gives out the extimate and standard error for x1 and x2 (difference compared to a global mean). I am able to calculate the the estimate for x3 myself, but how can I come up with the standard error?
