I'm trying to examine change in latent variables over time but I'm using parcels to denote the latent variables. here is the code i've been using:

VARIABLE:
NAMES ARE id MOSeB MOStB MOSaB MOSpB MOSe3 MOSt3 MOSa3 MOSp3 MOSe5 MOSt5 MOSa5 MOSp5;

USEVARIABLES ARE MOSeB MOStB MOSaB MOSpB MOSe3 MOSt3 MOSa3 MOSp3 MOSe5 MOSt5 MOSa5 MOSp5;

ANALYSIS:
TYPE IS general;
ESTIMATOR IS ML;
ITERATIONS = 5000;
CONVERGENCE = 0.00005;

MODEL:
MOSB by MOSeB MOStB MOSaB MOSpB;
MOS3 by MOSe3 MOSt3 MOSa3 MOSp3;
MOS5 by MOSe5 MOSt5 MOSa5 MOSp5;
i s | MOSB@0 MOS3@1 MOS5@2;

OUTPUT: MODINDICES (ALL) STANDARDIZED;

Does this look right? I'm having difficulty getting the analysis to work.

See the Topic 4 course handout under multiple indicator growth modeling.
