What is the problem that StdYX exceeds one? Does that matter? If StdYX (or Std) is greater than 1, e.g.,1.020, the residual variance will be 0.040. And RSquare is undefined. Following that there is 0.10400E+01. Should I use 0.10400E+01. as RSquare?

If this is a 1factor model you have an inadmissible solution (since variances should be positive) and you would want to modify your model.

This is fivefactor model

This may be a sign that the factor covariance matrix is not positive definite as it should be. For example, check for correlations greater than 1. However, for a fuller treatment of the topic of standardized coefficients greater than 1, see Joreskog's writing at www.ssicentral.com/lisrel/column2.htm

Thank you.I am sorry, this site is not working. 


Try www.ssicentral.com and go to Karl's corner. Perhaps they have changed the link.
