Dear Professor,

I am revising a paper to a journal. The editor asks for 95% CIs for the factor loadings of the latent variables in the SEM. But from the output of Mplus, I can only have the estimates of the factor loadings from the column called "StdYX". Do you know where I can find their standard errors to calculate 95% CIs or any command to ask Mplus to generate 95% CIs for factor loadings? Thanks a lot.

If you don't get SEs for standardized loadings you are probably using an older Mplus version. If not, send relevant outputs to support.

Dear Professor Muthen,

Thanks for the prompt response. I am using version 6.11. Is that too old? By the way, the estimator I am using is WLSMV. Is that also related to the issue?

The current version is 7.11. With WLSMV, we do not give standard errors of the parameter estimates when the model includes covariates.
