Dear Muthens,

I am running a EFA on a sample with 170 observations and 24 observed binary indicators. All missing values (n=6) are specified set to -9.

When I run it with pairwise deletion, the output only shows me 85 observations and 6 missings, when I run it with listwise deletion it shows me 80 observations but gives no information on missings. Now my question, what is happening with my other 90 observations?

When I run this model as a CFA the output shows 170 observations and 6 missing values.

Thank you!
