I'm running a growth model as follows:

MODEL: i s | crisk06l@0 crisk07l@.1 crisk08l@.2 crisk09l@.3;
OUTPUT: MODINDICES(ALL 0);
SAMPSTAT;

A mod index is listed as "CRISK06L ON CRISK06L." How would one interpret this mod index? It appears to be referring to an indicator variable regressed on itself, which doesn't make sense to me.

Thanks,
Jordan

Modification indices are given for all fixed and constrained parameters. You should look at only substantively meaningful modification indices.
