Dear all,

I ran a multigroup comparison with three groups and I would like to see if the path coefficients significantly differ between groups (similar to http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1469029204000792).

Is there any way to run such analyses with Mplus? I was told that it is possible with AMOS and I am currently looking for a way to do this with my current model.

Thank you very much in advance and kind regards

Julian

You can do 2 runs, one of which holds the path coefficients equal and then do a likelihood-ratio chi-square test of the difference. Or, you can label the parameters and do a Wald test using Model Test.
