TITLE: Montecarlo of snap; DATA: FILE = "z:\projects\snap archive\boot.txt"; TYPE = MONTECARLO; VARIABLE: NAMES = y1-y285; categorical are y1-y285; MISSING = .;
ANALYSIS: TYPE = efa 1 2;
The job runs through the (currently 3) datasets that I specify, but the output doesn't contain anything about the EFA, it ends after computing the correlation matrix. TECH9 lists each iteration, but no errors. I also note that each dataset runs fine on its own.
Linda, by way of follow-up, I thought I might try the same problem using the Mplus monte carlo data generation rather than doing it internally. That would entail running a step one model to simply estimate all 285 thresholds, which could then be used as the basis for a monte carlo run using the population statement.
I guess my question is, how can I run a model to do nothing but estimate and save the thresholds for a whole lot of categorical variables?
dear prof I want to generate Monte Carlo data sets using an external program and then model them in MPLUS. all of my repetition are in one datasheet,But I think MPLUS cannot understand them and I should shift every simulation to one datasheet? this is true? thanks
