When I run this simple model using 8.1

analysis:
type=twolevel;
model:
%within%
Y on X;
%between%
Y on X;

I get this warning message:

In the MODEL command, the x variable on the WITHIN level refers to the whole observed X variable.

Is this warning message accurate?

Thanks

Jamie

This warning message should be printed only with random slopes like for the UG ex 9.2c (part 3) on pages 278-279. So you should ignore this warning for your example. A latent variable decomposition is carried out also with ML (not only for Bayes) for your example and the results are correct.

Hi Bengt

I am also now getting this error since the latest update to version 8.

I am trying to use two-level latent decomposition of an x covariate with a weighted dataset so my only option is MLR estimation.

So I can ignore this error?

Yes.
