Hi there,
one quick question please: how are the degrees of freedom in a simple multiple group cfa computed?

For each group figure the number of H1 parameters in the regular way and add them up. Then subtract the number of free parameters in the H0 model from that.

As MPlus outputs the unique chi-square contribution for each group in a multi-group CFA, I am wondering if there is a way to obtain via MPlus output the degrees of freedom for each group (so that I can perform group-specific equal-fit tests for nested models)?

Not available so you need to figure what the group-specific parameters are.
