I am wondering if it is possible to model multiple events using latent variables with Mplus? I would appreciate any insights/suggestions!!
Thanks
Michael

Can you provide more details for what you are trying to model?

Dear Tihomir
Thanks for your quick reply;
I am trying to predict the time between individual events (i.e. T1-T0, T2-T1, T3-T2, T4-T3, ...) based on some observed covariates after account the effect of measurement errors across the follow-up study.
Thanks
Michael

You can use survival analysis to model these differences. See example 6.20 and declare the differences as survival variables for a multivariate survival analysis. These variables can be correlated through a factor analysis model. See also section 3.1

Thanks Tihomir for your insightful input ! I will try that approach although it looks quite tricky to model using Mplus!
Many thanks
Michael
