Fix index under WLSMV with multiple i... PreviousNext

I'm running a CFA with multiple imputed data (I generated outside Mplus), the estimator is WLSMV because I have non-normal likert scale. All the fit index values in the mplus output are showed as means over multiple datasets and there is no p-value for chi-square. How should I interpret them?
Thank you!

The values given are averages over the imputations. The only fit statistic that has been developed for multiple imputation is chi-square for maximum likelihood estimation for continuous variables.

Thank you for your reply.
Do you have any suggestion? How do I know my model fit?

Unless you are using maximum likelihood with continuous outcomes, there are no fit statistics developed for multiple imputation.
