I have a 2-level model with 3 categorical variables on level 2.
In order to differentiate their effects, I used effect coding like this
d1 d2
x1 1 0
x2 0 1
x3 -1 -1

Mplus then gives out the extimate and standard error for x1 and x2 (difference compared to a global mean). I am able to calculate the the estimate for x3 myself, but how can I come up with the standard error?

Thanks a lot for your help,

Use MODEL CONSTRAINT to calculate the estimate for x3 and you will get a standard error for it.
