Dear Drs. Muthen,

I am new to Mplus and LCA/LPA.

I am using DCON with a distal outcome. I wish to include two other covariates in the model - can you advise as to which Auxiliary command to use or should these covariates be specified in the model command?

Also I note the error message that DCON cannot be used with KNOWNCLASS - is there a workaround this?

Thank you.

DCON cannot be used with KNOWNCLASS or with any of the other AUXILIARY settings. There is no workaround.

Thank you.

Can I use AUXILIARY R3STEP for covariates [eg social class and school year] and DU3STEP/DE3STEP for distal outcome [eg quality of life] in the one model at the same time?

No.
