Dear all,

I was looking for a way to compute multilevel models in OpenMx, so I ported the Mx code in the appendix of Mehta & Neale's excellent paper (1) to OpenMx (2). As far as I'm aware, there is no working example of multilevel modeling in OpenMx yet, so I leave a link here in case someone is interested. Comments are welcome!


(1) Mehta, P. D., & Neale, M. C. (2005). People are variables too: Multilevel structural equations modeling. Psychological Methods, 10(3), 259–284.

Dear Chris, Thanks, it sounds

Dear Chris,

Thanks, it sounds great.
It's definitely interesting, it will help me better understand both this nice paper and OpenMx which I'm discovering.

I implemented some basic OpenMx multilevel support for a class during the spring of this year. Unfortunately, the code cannot be merged into the OpenMx trunk yet. There are still a lot of loose ends to clean up.
