Dear all,

I am trying to generate a correlation matrix for a publication. My model has latent and single indicator variables. Doing the SEM with MPlus works. Now I am trying to use TECH4 to generate the correlation matrix. This works as long as there are only latent variables. Now I tried to fake a latent variable from a single indicator variable and it tells me NO CONVERGENCE.

Is there a way to get a correlation matrix with combined latent and single indicator variables?

It works to create a latent variable behind a single indicator - just say:

f by y; y@0;

This puts the y variance into f.

That worked. Thanks a lot!
