Mplus is a useful tool for conducting SEM-related analyses from start to finish. Mplus provides more precise control over modeling and more accurate estimates, particularly for interactions and multiple mediation. Here are a couple useful resources to get you up to speed. I'll be adding more later.
- Reference: Mplus Syntax Examples
This reference is one that I created to quickly summarize and provide examples for some basic analyses (EFA, Mediation, etc.). There are other references linked to within this guide, but they felt somewhat less accessible. The data, syntax, and output files for the examples in this reference are also included in the linked document.
- VIDEO TUTORIAL: Mplus YouTube Playlist
This playlist of tutorials includes most of the critical measurement and structural analyses, such as EFA, CFA, mediation, moderation, and multigroup analysis.
