Constraining paths in multiple groups... PreviousNext

I need to test gender via a multiple groups model for an indistinguishable dyad APIM. However, given the nature of the indistinguishable APIM (all actor and partner paths are constrained), I'm having trouble.

Is it possible to constrain paths separately for each group? I.e. how do I make it so the partner paths for females ('p') are constrained and the partner paths for males ('b') are constrained without constraining 'p' and 'b' to be equal?

You can do this using group-specific MODEL commands. See Chapter 14 of the Mplus User's Guide where this is described.
