I am trying to establish invariance using ESEM across 4 ethnic groups. I can get an answer when I constrain factor loadings across groups but I am having trouble getting an unconstrained baseline model using the target rotation?
ERROR in MODEL command An EFA factor has been redeclared in a BY statement without (*label). Only one declaration of the factor is allowed.
My message is too long so I've included abridged syntax here. I specify the same model for each ethnic group.
GROUPING IS Ethnic6 (6=White 1=Black 2=Latino 5=Chinese);
