I am looking on p. 363 of the Mplus manual (version 6).
It looks like the std. dev.'s are nearly identical to MSE's. Does this indicates small bias in general? In other words, if MSE's diverged greatly from empirical st. dev.'s, would that indicate bias?

On p. 364, it says, "To determine standard error bias, subtract the population standard error..." My questions is, how would one know the population standard error? It can only be estimated with MSE, right?
