I would like to ask a question about the CFA part of a multiple indicator growth model.
Does the EFA and CFA step not take into account the nested structure of the data? For example it does not appear that a multilevel factor analysis is conducted prior to fitting a growth model to hierarchically nested data. Or is the nested structure completely handled by the growth model. Thanks
