Discrepancy with missing are all command PreviousNext

I am a newer Mplus user and can't figure out what is going on with my analysis.

I have 330 cases without any missing data on the measured variables.

When I include the following command code anyway "MISSING ARE all (-99);" it drastically changes the results of my chi-square goodness of fit test.

I would like to not use the command, but I am hesitating since it seems to me that I should get the same results with or without that command.

Is there an explanation for the discrepancy? Thank you!

First, ask for Patterns in the Output command to check your missing data status when using the MISSING statement. Perhaps some of your variables have legitimate values of -99.

If that doesn't help, send input, output, data and license number to Support.
