Dear Drs. Muthen,

I'm new to both SEM and Mplus. Most of my variables are dichotomous or categorical. I found in the book suggesting use WLSMV. The problem is I don't have raw data. Is there any way I can do to run SEM with Mplus?

WLSMV and ML require raw data with categorical variables.

Thank you!
Would summing up the dichotomous variables into skewed continuous variable(0-3) and use MLR be an option?

I'm not sure how you would sum them if you don't have raw data.
