Hello! I am struggling with the following problem: I want to compare two regression slopes in a 1 x 2 within subject design. My question is: Is the regression slope of y1 on x1 different to the regression slope of y2 on x2? I'm not very good with MPlus, I've just started using it. How can I compute this analysis? I would be very thankful for help! kathalo 


y1 ON x1 (p1); y2 ON x2 (p2); MODEL TEST: 0 = p1  p2; This assumes the variables are on the same metric or comparing the coefficients make no sense. 


Thank you so much! I have got one more uncertainty: I thought it would be reasonable to control for y2 and x2 ind the first regression and for y1 and x1 in the second regression. So I get: model: y1 on x1 (p1) x2 y2; y2 on x2(p2) x1 y1; But if I do so, a "THE DEGREES OF FREEDOM FOR THIS MODEL ARE NEGATIVE. THE MODEL IS NOT IDENTIFIED. NO CHISQUARE TEST IS AVAILABLE. CHECK YOUR MODEL." Error occurs. What is wrong? Does it make more sense just do control for the other predictor, instead of controlling for both criteria and predictor? Thank you for your help, Katharina
