Dear Linda/Bengt,

I am estimating a longitudinal model using the Bollen-Stine-Bootstrap.
I have requested 5000 samples, in my results only 3947 are converging.
What does that mean for my model? Are there restrictions for the interpretion and can I use the results of the model? Is there a way to meet the 5000 samples, maybe by changing starting values? The Fit of the model is ok (also Bootstrap-p-value), iterations are 10000.

Thanks for your help.

This may mean that your model is unstable. I would consider changing the model.
