Dear Dr. Muthén,

In a path analysis, how many participants do we need per category in order to test a model with a grouping variable (with 3 categories) and with 2 dependent variables, 2 independent variables and 2 control variables?

We want to make sure that our results are not only due to one category having less respondents (our 3 categories have 89, 38 and 77 respondents).

Thank you very much!

Those group sizes seem fine because you don't have many parameters per group. The 38 group will have less influence but that's ok.
