I was wondering what the difference is between the standardized coefficients given in the StdYX-row by using the STANDARDIZED-command in the output line and the estimated correlation matrix you can get by using the Tech4-command in the output line.
I thought standardized coefficient in a linear regression model and though in a latent regression model can be interpreted like correlations.
But the StdYX- and estimated correlation-values differ between the same latent variables ...
What value should I take then? What is the difference between stdYX and "estimated correlations"?
Yes, it can. Because the correlation consists of several parts, also going through the other independent variables, where their correlations influence the correlation. Linear regression books probably have examples of this.

I was wondering what the difference is between the unstandardized correlation between the latent variables and the standardized (STDXY) correlation between the latent variables in the output, and which one to present?
The unstandardized value is much smaller than the standardized value. I also requested TECH4 output and the correlation matrix only provides the factor indicators (the covariance matrix provides the latent variable covariances).
