Good afternoon,

I am currently conducting a data estimation that involve some latent variables with ordinal-scale observed variables and also ordinal (1-7 Likert) dependent variable. I use Generalised SEM of STATA 13 to estimate my model. However, I encounter a problem especially when I need to test the 'goodness of fit' and 'indirect effect', as STATA does not have such test instruments for its GSEM.

I am wondering if MPLUS can solve my problem. If so, I am happily to move to MPLUS.

Kind Regards,

Indirect effects can be obtained by Mplus. With categorical variables, Mplus provides bivariate tests of fit (TECH10) and in addition, the WLSMV estimator gives an overall goodness of fit test.
