R-square in Mplus PreviousNext

Hi there,

I am running a multilevel mediation model (2-2-1), whereby I am running between coefficients to estimate the variance in the outcome variable (measured at level 1).

The outcome variable measured in level 1 is a latent construct. These are measured through observed variables. When I run the Mplus multilevel mediation analysis, I get a R-Square values for each of the observed variables of that specific latent construct.

Is it possible to get a R-square value for the whole latent construct rather than the variance explained by individual observed items in Mplus?

The output gives you R2 also for the latent DVs.

Thanks for the response. It does gives the R2 Square values for the Between (latent) DVs and Within (for each Observed item) for the DV latent construct.
