Hi,

I am running an SEM model and I want to see if demos like gender, race and age can have any effect on the paths. I did not add these demos in the line (model command) where I included the latent factors to bring their variances to the model. Therefore, I got a warning message. Does this message just mean that people who did not mention their demos are excluded from analysis or should I be worried? Thanks.

Missing data theory does not apply to observed exogenous variables so any observation with a missing value on one or more of these variables is excluded from the analysis.
