I want regress a 13dependent variables (5 continuous and 8 dichotomous)on a set of 24 dependents with missing data. What is the advantage of using Mplus simultaneous regression over OLS/Logit in some other software? For example: (a) adjusted p for multiple tests, (b) smaller standard errors because correlated error terms are taken into account, (c)other?
Dear mplus team I have a quick query How is missing data handled in a straight forward regression, such as in path analysis with continuous variables, if the LISTWISE option in DATA is not used? Many thanks for your help
Mplus provides maximum likelihood estimation under MCAR (missing completely at random) and MAR (missing at random; Little & Rubin, 2002) for continuous, censored, binary, ordered categorical (ordinal), unordered categorical (nominal), counts, or combinations of these variable types.
