Hi,
As the user guide said, in multiple group analysis, intercepts, thresholds, and factor loadings are held equal across groups as default. But does this also apply to second-order factor model?

I have a second-order factor model: three second-order factors and each second-order factor has two first-order factors (each first-order factor has multiple observed variables).
I have no problem constraining the first-order factor loadings across groups but have difficulty holding the second-order factor loadings equal across groups.

These should be held equal as the default. You should not have to do anything to hold them equal. Please send the output and your license number to support@statmodel.com.
