Hi, Linda

I have a question.
Can I run a multiple group CFA with Mplus when groups have different number of indicators?

Thank you

Hi, Linda

I have another question about missing data generation.

I am trying to generate data set of MG-CFA(two group) for a Monte Carlo study.

I wonder how generate missing data only for Group2.

Thank you.

MODEL MISSING can be used for only one group. You do this using the group label.

I am including model syntax below.

MONTECARLO:
NAMES=Y1-Y5;
NOBSERVATIONS= 400 400;
NGROUPS=2;
NREPS=500;
REPSAVE=ALL;
SAVE=rep*.DAT;
RESULTS=results.sav;
missing=Y4-Y5;


MODEL POPULATION:
F1@1;
F1 BY Y1@1.0 Y2@0.9 Y3@0.8 Y4@0.7 Y5@.6;
Y1@.33 Y2@.54 Y3@0.16 Y4@0.21 Y5@.19;
[Y1@1.0 Y2@1.0 Y3@1.0 Y4@1.0 Y5@1.0];
[F1@0];

MODEL POPULATION-g2:
F1 BY Y4-Y5@0;
[Y4@1.0 Y5@1.0];

MODEL MISSING-G2:
[Y4@1.0 Y5@1.0];

But the generated data sets include missing data both group1 and group2.
Would you please give me an advise and information?
