MIMIC type model
Structural Equation Modeling
posted on Saturday, November 28, 2009 - 10:44 pm
I want to run the following MIMIC type model of labor supply with a latent variable
modern by y1 y2 y3 y4
modern on c x1 x2
labor ON c modern x1 x2 x3 x4
The latent variable “modern” is a continuous variable
labor is the dependent variable of interest and is binary
The y’s are binary indicators; c is a constant; x1, x3 are vectors of binary variables; x2, x4 are vectors of continuous variables
My questions are:
a. Is the above formulation correct in terms of MPlus?
b. Are there limitations on the y’s and x’s I can put in?
c. Are there restrictions I should be imposing?

a. You don't include the constant c as a variable. If c=1, that would imply an intercept which you get by default in Mplus.
b. No important ones that I can think of.
