I would like to estimate factor scores for units based on the parameters from a CFA with categorical indicators. I guess I would know how to do this technically in CFA with continuous indicators, but I am a bit unsure what to do in case of cateogrical ones. Can anybody give advice how to either do this computationally 'by hand' or use Mplus to do this. I couldn't find a syntax command.

Thank you.

See the SAVEDATA command to see how to save factor scores. You can't compute them by hand for categorical indicators because it is an iterative procedure in this case.
