Hi,

Not sure if Mplus set factor loadings of first- and second-order factor model equal as default. If not, how do I impose those equalities myself?

thanks!

The second-order factor loadings are not held equal as the default. You use equality labels as follows:

f4 BY f1 f2 (1)
f3 (2);

So does this mean that I use the equality labels you suggested for my baseline group as well as the comparison groups?

If you put the equalities in the overall MODEL command, they apply to both groups. Please see the discussion of multiple group analysis in Chapter 13 of the Mplus User's Guide.
