Re-analyzing categorical summary data PreviousNext

I have a 6-item CFA with ordinal data that exhibits good fit statistics with WLSMV. I would like to save the summary data from this analysis so it can be re-analyzed without having access to the raw data. I have used the SAMPLE option of the SAVEDATA command to save the correlation matrix, however, there doesn't appear to be a great way to re-analyze this data (i.e. the ULS estimator doesn't provide fit statistics).

In fact, it seems like the best option is to treat the data as continuous so I can save a covariance matrix to re-analyze with MLR. Is there a better way to accomplish this, perhaps by saving an an asymptotic covariance matrix?

Thank you for your response!

With WLSMV, raw data are required. Mplus does not allow the analysis of a correlation matrix and an asymptotic covariance matrix.
