I would like to run a CFA (3 factors). I have continous, but skewed data. After reading some posts, I think both MLR and WLSMV would be ok. Is that correct?

And how can I correct for data collected within school classes. Is adding CLUSTER = class sufficient? (And is MLR/WLSMV than still the correct estimator?)

Many thanks!

MLR would be the correct estimator not WLSMV. You can use either TYPE=COMPLEX or TYPE=TWOLEVEL for clustered data. See the introduction to Chapter 9 of the user's guide for further information.

Please don't post the same question in more than one place on Mplus Discussion.
