In Mplus can you use ML to estimate a model with two dichotomous dependent variables and specify that the variables are dependent conditional on the independent variables. A simple example would be D1 on X1 X2; D2 on X1 X2; The independent variables are dummy coded. Thank you. Jamie
Yes. You can't use WITH but you can introduce a factor that is measured by D1 and D2, fixing its variance at 1 and letting the D2 loading pick up the residual covariance. It takes 1 dimension of integration which is fine.
