I have 2 level data, individuals within areas and I have area level data that has no within variance. I want to specify a model in which a latent variable measured by the between only observed variables influences the random intercept in a level 1 model. I am having major problems and someone told me that this type of model (where the indicators of the level 2 latent variable have no within variance) is problematic. Is this true? Thank you,

This should not be a problem in Mplus. See Example 9.9 in the user's guide.
