Hi,
I would like to compute the satorra-bentler chi2 for an CFA on ordinal data using WLSMV estimator. It is said to use the DIFFTEST option. How should I define the CFA under the null hypotethis to use the DIFFTEST?

DATA: FILE IS datae.txt;
VARIABLE: NAMES ARE pacic1-pacic26;
USEVARIABLES ARE pacic1-pacic20 ;
CATEGORICAL ARE pacic1 pacic2 pacic3 pacic4 pacic5 pacic6 pacic7 pacic8 pacic9 pacic10 pacic11 pacic12 pacic13 pacic14 pacic15 pacic16 pacic17 pacic18 pacic19 pacic20 ;

MODEL:
dim1 BY pacic1 @1 pacic2 pacic3 pacic5 pacic6 pacic12 pacic13 pacic14 pacic15 ;
dim2 BY pacic4 @1 pacic7 pacic8 pacic9 pacic10 pacic11 pacic16 pacic17
pacic18 pacic19 pacic20 ;

Satorra-Bentler does not apply to WLSMV.

In DIFFTEST, you run two models one of which is nested in the other. See Example 13.12.
