Dear Linda,

To my understanding, it is a default in the analysis to correlate endogenous variables, if the relationship between these variables are not specified in the model. In my analysis of multilevel model, I have two dependent variables at the unit level. One is contextual performance and the other is financial performance. I want these two variables to be uncorrelated. Is it possible to constrain this correlation to zero? Could you please advise. Thank you.
