I am working with a SEM that has 5 continuous latent variables and 3 observed outcome variables that are binary (No=0, Yes=1). Since my 3 outcome variables (DIST, BEHAV, and SUIC)are not latent, is it necessary to specify them as "categorical"?
Partial Syntax is: DIST ON Rel Fam Fri Teach Sch; BEHAV ON Rel Fam Fri Teach Sch; SUIC ON Rel Fam Fri Teach Sch;
If I specify them as categorical I use the knownclass/class mixture modeling which also has not worked. The analysis ran for 4 days. Any assistance would be appreciated.
