Hello,

I'd like to specify a factor on the between-level which is based on four indicators measured at the within level
(%between%
fb by x1-x4;).

This factor will serve as a covariate in a structural model.

However, I explicitly do not want to include a corresponding within-level factor in my model.

Which syntax should I use in order to adequately exclude x1-x4 from the within-level of my model?
Many thanks

You can create cluster mean variables for x1-x4 and use those as between variables.
