RMSEA in CFA using WLSMV estimation PreviousNext

I've been running a number of CFA models on the same data set using dichotomous indicators and the WLSMV estimator. Models range between 1-3 latent variables. I noticed that following the analysis on a couple of the models the RMSEA was not reported. On the models concerned CFI=1 and TLI>1. Be glad of an explantion for this. Many thanks indeed.

I don't know which version of Mplus you are using. I think we now print something for RMSEA in all cases. Could you send the output and data to support@statmodel.com. RMSEA is most likely zero in your case.

While a simple CFA model with 4 indcators output from MPlus shows a RMSEA of 0.149 but LISREL is 0.019. Is the definition of RMSEA of MPlus different from that of LISREL. Thanks.

Are the estimators the same? Are the chi-square values the same? Are the estimators the same?

Does the new version of Mplus provide 90% CIs for the RMSEA when models are estimated with WLSMV? An editor is requesting that we report this information for a paper. Does anyone have a good response to her/his request?

Thank you!

Yes, Version 6 has 90% confidence intervals for WLSMV.

Is there a separate command to produce confidence intervals for RMSEA using WLSMV. I conducted a CFA model using version 6 with WLMSV and it did not produce CIs for RMSEA.

Thanks in advance!

No, there is no option for this.
