Dear Linda & Bengt:

I have a seven-year panel data (repeated measure of same set of facilities for seven years in a row). I wanted to fit a GCM. But the residual has a truncated distribution because the endogenous variable ranges from 0 to 1 but not including 0 and 1 (not censored). Can you advise me on how to fit it?

Thanks for your time.

Mplus does not handle truncated normal variables.
