Dear Muthens, I want to run a twolevel intercept-only- (twolevel) model in order to know the variance of the y-variable at level 2. The y-variable contains missings, so in a first step I did a multiple imputation of missings (example 11.5, user guide 7).
In a second step I tried to use the imputated datasets to run an intercept-only- model. Mplus runs the model without error messages, but I cannot find the output. When I run a simple path analysis the output is displayed without any problems.
Can it be that this stepwise procedure cannot be used for twolevel analyses? Considering this, I tried to include the "data imputation" command in the inp-file for the intercept-only model. However, if I use variables for the imputation that are not needed for the analysis of the model, the variance at level 2 is not displayed.
How can I run a simple intercept-only model using an imputated data set?
Thank you very much in advance for your answer, Claudia
