Hi Bengt/Linda

my apologies if this is more of a conceptual SEM question rather than a specific Mplus question, but can you conceive of a way of setting up a dependence between growth factors and occasion-specific residuals?

For instance, it's plausible that subsequent fluctuations (or error) might be associated with ones' intercept.

many thanks, Jon

This can be done by turning a residual into a factor. See the ideas in the FAQ:
