Dear Linda,

I am running a multigroup CFA in 57 groups using covariance matrices and mean vectors as input.

The model runs fine, when I am looking at a subset of the groups (up to 50 groups). However, when I try to incorporate all 57 groups, I get the following error message:

*** ERROR in DATA command
There are fewer NOBSERVATIONS entries than groups in the analysis.

The NOBSERVATIONS and the NGROUPS statements are correctly specified. Is there an inherent limitation to 50 groups with this sort of analysis?

Thanks for your help!
