You are referring to defaults for multiple group analysis. The defaults differ for mixture models. You relax the constraint by putting the ON statement in the class-specific MODEL commands, for example,
%C#1% [f9wba f6e *-2.1973] ; f9wba on f6e ;
I think this should work.

thanks a lot for your answer! It works!!! :-)
Now we´re only looking for the R squares for each class. Are they calculated in mplus?
Ask for STANDARDIZED in the OUTPUT command and you should get them.

I would like to report adjusted R-square statistics for two classes in a mixture regression model with Mplus 3.12. I am able to get the R-square statistics for the separate classes with Standardized output but would like to adjust these for the the number of IVs and cases in each class.
Is this appropriate for this form of model?
If so, should I just use the traditional formula for adjusting R-square using the n's for the two classes? Does the latent class variable require any different treatment in the formula?
I would think the same approach applies as in regular regression, but I have not looked into this.

(I tried to post this follow-up question earlier but don't see it here, so I apologize if this is a duplicate posting.)
Thanks, Professor Muthen.
Because I found substantial variation in the two class sizes, I think it is important that I report adjusted R-squares for the separate class regressions to reflect those class size differences in relation to the number of independent variables in my model.
If you will allow me, I have a follow-up question about that calculation. I am using this formula to make the adjustments:
I am using the class size reported by Mplus as the n in each adjustment, but I'm not sure whether the latent class variable should be counted in numIVs. Since the latent class is a constant within each class regression model, I would think it should not be included in the numIVs in the RSQ adjustments for each class.
Would you advise me on this?
Also, since you do not report adjusted R-square in Mplus, I'm wondering if you would suggest I just ignore this whole issue and simply report the unadjusted R-squares. I have had reviewers insist on adjusted R-squares in the past.
Thanks again for your help, patience and wisdom on this.

I would think the latent class variable should not be counted in numIVs. I ignore adjusting R-square, but then again I haven't been up against reviewers commenting on my regressions.

Thanks so much! Have a great weekend.

Is there a way to generate information regarding sums of squares, total sums of squares, etc... using Mplus output commands? If there is not, could you suggest a method for accomplishing this using Mplus output? Thank you.
