Within a relatively simple SEM model, all of my indicators of one of my latent variables have a preponderance of zeros. Is it appropriate to use the "DATA TWOPART" command and then use each of the new continuous and binary variables as predictors of the latent variable?

In this situation, you would have one factor for the continuous indicators and one factor for the binary indicators.
