I ran a multilevel CFA twice, once a half year ago with version 3.1 and right now, with version 5.1. I got different results, although the data were absolutely the same. I noticed that in the first case "expected" and in the second "observed" were denoted for calculation of the information matrix. Has the default setting changed from version 3 to 5? As I do not have any missings (working with MI) I guess "expected" is in my case the correct setting, right? Thank you very much for your help! Janine
The default in Version 3 was listwise deletion of the data with missing values. In Version 5, the default to to use all information. This is why the information matrices changed. If you want listwise deletion, add LISTWISE=ON; to the DATA command.
