I am wondering if it is possible to obtain growth factor estimates (intercepts and slopes from LGM) separately for each subject in the sample. I would like to save these values in a separate file. How can I do this? I already tried several things with the SAVEDATA-command, without success.
This worked, thanks alot! I am getting stars in the first column, and stars preceding some variables, but that isn't a problem. I am surprised that the growth factor scores are full numbers: I had expected scores like for instance -1,3549 instead of -1 for the slopes. Is this just my ignorance, or? Thanks, Sylvana
Just use the Save graph data option under the Plot menu.

Is there any way to use individuals' correlations (via savedata maybe) between two growth/slope factors as a predictor, or more specifically in my case a mediator of group differences on an outcome? Is that legit?
Imputation in this case refers to factor score estimation. That is, draws from a posterior distribution. The benefit of Bayes is that a distribution of values is obtained for each subject, not just the mean and SE.
