Hi, We can compute the sum of factor loadings in mplus software in the CFA example by setting (F1 "BY x1-x6*(p1-p6); MODEL CONSTRAINT: new(H1); H1=(p1+p2+p3+p4+p5+p6);" How can we do in ESEM? I eagerly need this function. I think that other researcher also need this function. Can you write code to achieve this function. Thank you!
I have a dataset where I want to correct for non-independent observations, in this case siblings. On another thread, you wrote, "if the SEs are fairly similar to those of regular MLR estimation, you could then not bother with the clustering." May I ask if there is a quantitative guideline for "fairly similar"?
Also, even if SEs and results of the model were similar, what would the explanation and advantage be for using the non-adjusted model rather than the adjusted model?
