Hello,

I want to know if it is necessary to do a CFA on a measured variable when doing a multiple group path analysis. Can the measured variable just be used as an index score or must a CFA be done?

Thanks for all replies!

I think you are asking if you need to put a factor behind an observed variable. The answer is no. Just use the observed variable in the MODEL command.
