I am running two SEMs in Mplus 5.21, where the only difference is the endpoint. Both endpoints came from the same variable. One is the original continuous variable and the other one is a categorical version of the continuous variable. But these two SEMs give me different observations (used in the model). It seems like the SEM with continuous endpoint only excludes the subjects who miss all VARIABLES and the SEM with a declared categorical endpoint excludes subjects who miss all X VARIABLES (exogenous variables). Is this true in Mplus? Any option to make them use the same observations? Thanks.
