I want to perform a latent change model with indicator-specific factors and age and sex as control variables. Are indicator-specific factors and these control variables allowed to correlate with each other? I wondered why the covariance is fixed to 0 in Mplus6 as the default.

Thank you very much!

My guess is that they shouldn't correlate but I am not familiar enough with the model to say. Try posting your question on SEMNET.
