I have been conducting EFAs in Mplus7. What is the default handling for missing data with categorical variables? (Missing=blank) I thought it was listwise but read somewhere in the blog that it is FIML. I want to be clear for this version of the software and anything else you think I should make sure I justify for this method when reporting. THANK YOU

If you are using ML or MLR, it in FIML. If you are using WLSMV, it is pairwise present. The default estimator for categorical outcomes is usually WLSMV. Check your output.
