Is it possible to have a multilevel factor model with random intercepts and random slopes for factor loadings?

This would be similar to User Manual v7 Example 9.10 (p.283) but with y1-y4 also having random intercepts and random slopes together with y5 but without the use of a covariate w?

If so, how might such a model be configured in Mplus?

Yes. You would need a bar statement for each of the other factor indicators and to remove w from the analysis. This could be computationally heavy.

Thank you Linda, would it look like this?


fw BY y1*-y5;

s1 | y1 ON fw;
s2 | y2 ON fw;
s3 | y3 ON fw;
s4 | y4 ON fw;
s5 | y5 ON fw;



fb BY y1*-y5;


y1 s1 ON fb;
y2 s2 ON fb;
y3 s3 ON fb;
y4 s4 ON fb;
y5 s5 ON fb;
