Hi folks,
We are interested in doing a Bayesian multigroup analysis. As I understand it, we need to use the knownclass statement in order for the Bayes model to run. However, the monte carlo generator doesn't seem to recognize the knownclass option. We have tried to generate multiple groups (which works) but then need to specify the model as knownclass in order to do the Bayesian analysis. Any suggestions?

I think you will need to do an external Monte Carlo where you generate the data in the first step and analyze it using TYPE=MONTECARLO in the second step. See Example 12.6 in the user's guide.
