Sorry, I feel that I should know this, but can Mplus handle two-level models and the use of replicate weights at the same time?

For example, suppose the sampling design consisted of stratified selection of PSUs, then within PSUs, schools were selected and then students within schools. The replicate weights could accommodate the first level of sampling while the model addresses the 2nd and 3rd.

I know that the sandwich estimator for the SEs is available if you have stratum and PSU info, but what if we only have replicate weights on the file?

Thanks,
Laura

No, replicate weights are available only for TYPE=COMPLEX.
