Dear All,

I am testing various levels of measurement invariance across groups with dichotomous factor indicators. I have read most of the discussion on this subject in this list, Webnote #4, and Millsap & Yun-Tein 2004 article. I still need some assistance.

My questions are:

1) Is it possible to test a multigroup CFA model with factor loadings and thresholds estimated freely across all groups [using thata parametrization]?

2) If so, what are the constraints needed to identify the model?

I would appreciate it if anyone in the group can share complete examples of multigroup CFA models (testing all levels of invariance) with dichtomous indicators.

Thank you.

See the section of measurement invariance in Chapter 13 after the multiple group discussion.
