Hello Dr. Muthens,

Can I preform multivariate multiple regression model with M-plus?

If it can, where can i find the corresponding codes for it?

Yes, see the examples in Chapter 3 of the user's guide on the website.

I am conducting regression analyses using Mplus. I have two different outcome variables. I also have missing data. I am therefore using ML, while making distributional assumptions about the covariates to prevent the loss of data.

However, I obtained different results depending on whether I ran the regressions for the two outcome variables simultaneously (i.e., requesting the results all at once using one program) or separately (i.e., requesting the results for each outcome variable alone; running the program twice).

As per the following link (, the individual coefficients and SEs should be the same using either separate OLS regressions or a multivariate multiple regression.

Hence, my questions are:
- The coefficients and SE differed slightly. Is this due to the missing data?
- If so, would you recommend I run the two regressions simultaneously or run each regression separately? (Suppose I don't want to compare the regression coefficients across equations)

Thank you! :-)
