I would like to calculate correlations among a bunch of variables (w/ missing data theory). However, I would like to get the standard errors for them & significant values. What do you recommend?

If you use TYPE=BASIC; and ask for H1SE; in the OUTPUT command, you can get standard errors for the means and covariances. If you need them for the correlations, you need to specify the means, variances, and covariances in the MODEL command, label the parameters, and use MODEL CONSTRAINT to define correlations. Mplus will then give standard errors for the correlations.
