Maximum likelihood scale score analysis

DATA:

file = eatingrisk.dat; 

VARIABLE:

names = abuse bmi bds1 - bds7 edr1 - edr6;

usevariables = abuse bds2 - bds7 edr1 - edr5 bodydis eatrisk;

missing = all(-99);

DEFINE:

bodydis = sum(bds1-bds7);

eatrisk = sum(edr1-edr6);

ANALYSIS:

estimator = ml;

MODEL:

! regression;

eatrisk on abuse bodydis;

! IV variances (necessary with incomplete predictors);

abuse bodydis;

! IV covariances (necessary with incomplete predictors);

abuse with bodydis;

! k-1 scale items as auxiliary variables;

! auxiliary variable correlations;

bds2 - bds7 edr1 - edr5 with abuse bodydis eatrisk;

bds2 - bds7 edr1 - edr5 with bds2 - bds7 edr1 - edr5;

OUTPUT:

standardized(stdyx) sampstat;
