Dear Drs. Muthen,

Is it possible to conduct a path analysis in M+ with categorical (binary) mediators using only summary data? Does it matter whether the summary data is a correlation or a covariance matrix?

When I expressed the categorical mediators using the "CATEGORICAL = m1 m2" in combination with the "ESTIMATOR = ML" statements, I received the following error message:

Internal Error Code: DPR1002

Can you please advice?

Thank you,

You need raw data for these analyses.
