Hello,
I am doing a simulation study. I simulated the data (1000 data files) external to Mplus. I would like to run mixture modeling on each of the files and then save the results of each of the simulated data files in one summary file with individual statistics (no averages). Furthermore, I only want to save the BIC. Is there a wait to specify such. I believe the Runall will care for saving the information in one file. However, is there anyway to specify what to save? Thank you.

I don't know of a way to do this in Mplus. See the website under How-To in the left column. You may be able to do it via R.

Thank you. Is there a Runall compatible with Windows 7? One last question. I cannot get the savedata option to work. Can you please correct coding? Thanks.

Title: Model One

Data: File=DC9Test.txt;
Type=Montecarlo;

Variable: Names are X1-X4;
Classes=c(2:4);


Analysis: Type=mixture;
Starts 100 15;

Model: %Overall%
F1 by X1 - X4;

Savedata: file is "results.txt";
save estimates;

Can I use ordinal variable instead of dichotomous variable for latent class factor analysis? Thank you.

Renee:

We no longer support RUNALL. Please see the user's guide for the correct specification of the ESTIMATES option.

Stata:

Yes.

None of the save options seem to work with the type=montecarlo. Is there anyway possible to save the results from the individual runs (in one file preferably or several files) instead of just the averages that are given by default. Thank you.
