I have seen that some authors specify in the method section if they used correlation or covariance matrix as input for their analyses.

When using Mplus I used the raw dataset:


What does Mplus used by default?
Correlation or covariance matrix?

It depends on the analysis. What type of model are you estimating.

It is a mediation model with continuous variables

The statistics for model estimation for this model would be a covariance matrix.
