Hi Dr. Muthen,
I am trying to run a regression model with both binary and continuous predictors in the same model. Can I read the STDY output to get the estimates of the binary predictors and the STDYX output for the estimates of continuous predictors OR is there another way to get the estimates of binary and continuous predictors?

Thank you,
Sakshi

You should use StdY for binary predictors and StdYX for continuous predictors.

Thank you for responding so quickly. I just want to make sure that I understand what you mean.
1) Are you suggesting that in the final output that's generated, I read the StdY output for binary predictors and StdYX output for continuous predictors OR

2) Is there any way to specify in the syntax that I need Stdy for binary predictors and StdYX for continuous?

In my model I have
X1 = Gender (binary)
X2 = Race (binary)
X3 = SES (continuous)
X4 = Diversity (continuous)

My Model statement looks like:

Y1 ON X1 X2 X3 X4;
Y2 ON X1 X2 X3 X4;
Y3 ON X1 X2 X3 X4;
Y4 ON X1 X2 X3 X4;
Y5 ON X1 X2 X3 X4;

and in the output I mention:
OUTPUT: standardized;

Where in this syntax can I indicate that I need Stdy for binary predictors and StdYX for continuous.

I apologize in advance if I sound naive.

Thank you

1)

2) No, you have to pick from different parts of the output.

I meant to say

1) Yes.
