Hi Dr. Muthen,

I am doing a path analysis using TIMSS data to make cross-country comparisons at the student level. According to the TIMSS user guide, I need to apply senate weight which are already provided in the data set. My question is how can I apply this weight in my analysis using Mplus.

My second question is about the 5 plausible values. I read other posts about plausible values, but it looks like they are trying to obtain a value for the missing data. My question is how to use the 5 plausible values which are already imputed by TIMSS appropriately so as to get the accurate estimate and se of the students' scores in Mplus.

Thanks a lot. Fen

Use the WEIGHT option to handle sampling weights (see UG).

Use TYPE=Imputation in the DATA command to handle plausible values (see UG).
