are there any special concerns with this model. it seems to be using some sort of quadrature in the estimation and takes forever to converge. the code i used is below. any advice would be great. thanks. ================================= TITLE: Binary outcome on CFA DATA: FILE IS L:\data_mil_1_3a.dat; FORMAT IS free; TYPE IS individual; OUTPUT: STAND; VARIABLE: NAMES ARE mil hhinc medu fedu hhincx unempx; USEVARIABLES ARE mil hhinc medu fedu hhincx unempx; CATEGORICAL IS mil; MISSING ARE .; ANALYSIS: TYPE IS missing meanstructure; ESTIMATOR IS ML; MODEL: mil ON ses; ses BY hhinc medu fedu hhincx unempx; 


This model requires numerical integration. I think it would be only one dimension so I don't know why it would be particularly slow. If you send the input, data, output, and your license number to support@statmodel.com, I can look into it. 


Muthen and Muthen, Quick question regarding a binary DV SEM model. I am running a logit SEM model with a binary DV and I noticed that there is no rsquared in the output. Is there any way of obtaining an rsquared or do I interrupt this using the odds ratios? Below is my mplus code: DATA: FILE IS SouthKorea.csv; VARIABLE: NAMES ARE V1....V253 PCuse2 d_PL d_JP d_SK d_PL1 ed5 ed6 lowinc highinc; USEVARIABLE ARE V1....V25 PCuse2 d_PL d_JP d_SK d_PL1 ed5 ed6 lowinc highinc; MISSING = ALL(9999); CATEGORICAL = PCuse2; ANALYSIS: estimator = ml; INTEGRATION = MONTECARLO(500); MODEL: gnT by V4 V6 V7 V8; PCuse2 on V23 V23 V24 ed5 ed6 lowinc highinc gnT; 


The STANDARDIZED option of the OUTPUT command produces Rsquare. 


Thank you! I used STDYX in the model. I received this output: RSquare Observed Estimate S.E. Est./S.E. PVal Variable PCUSE2 .640 .053 12.232 0.000 etc. etc. Questions: Is the Rsqr the coefficient listed under 'Estimate'? Or how would I interpret this section of the output? 


Yes. The first column is Rsquare. The second is its standard error. The third is the ratio of the estimate to its standard error which is a ztest in large samples. The pvalue for this ztest is given in the last column.
