I am estimating a bayesian CFA and noticed that the deviance information criterion is missing when using categorical indicators? Was this intentional? I would like to compare the fit between several models and all that is included in the output is the PP p-value. Is there a particular reason why the DIC is absent? Is it not recommended for categorical indicators?

Thanks in advance.

DIC is currently not available with categorical variables. That is because the likelihood can not be evaluated explicitly.

is DIC now available for models with continuous and categorical variables?
