HI ,

My model is with all observed variables with participants over 4000.

X1--> Y1 and Y2
X2--> Y1 and Y2
X3--> Y1 and Y2

According to theory, Y1 and Y2 are highly correlated.

I built the path models, however:

1)When I set the error terms between y1 and Y2 correlated, the model fit is 0.06

2) When I set the error terms to be not related, the model fit is 0.46

I was wondering, how am I be able to reflect the correlation between Y1 and Y2.
and to have a good fit?

Thank you
