Power for RSDEM PreviousNext

I've read Schultzberg & Muthén's simulation on "Number of Subjects and Time Points Needed for Multilevel Time-Series Analysis" and have two follow-up questions:

1) Is there a way to estimate the power of a model based on the results of a DSEM calculation? (would appreciate any references)

2) Are there recommendations for bivariate / multivariate models (as the paper above only touches on univariate models)?

1) Power estimates are provided in the usual Mplus output for Monte Carlo studies. For a general description, see e.g.

Muthén, L.K. & Muthén, B.O. (2002). How to use a Monte Carlo study to decide on sample size and determine power. Structural Equation Modeling, 4, 599-620. Mplus inputs and outputs used in this paper can be viewed and/or downloaded from the Examples page.

2) No, but it is easy to do your own Monte Carlo study in Mplus.

thank you so much, that was exactly the kind of resource I was looking for.
