Hello,

Output without group.equal( ):

Notice how it only constrains the first group, and then both at the same.

I am using Lavaan 0.6-4.1411 and building up a LGC, and I want to constrain residual variance within each group across the manifest variables, but I cannot figure out how to do so. When using group.equal in my growth( ) function, it constrains them, but gives each group the same estimate. Can I have Lavaan estimate constrained residuals for each group?

Model specification:

`# mean latent intercept and constrained residual variancesgrowth.model1 <- ' # intercept i =~ 1*TVIPR_1 + 1*TVIPR_2 + 1*TVIPR_3 i~~0*i # residual variances TVIPR_1~~r*TVIPR_1 TVIPR_2~~r*TVIPR_2 TVIPR_3~~r*TVIPR_3'`

Output without group.equal( ):

pre-multiply:

```
Demo.growth$group <- rep(c("1", "2"), each = 200)
model.syntax <- '
# intercept and slope with fixed coefficients
i =~ 1*t1 + 1*t2 + 1*t3 + 1*t4
i ~~ 0*i
# time-varying covariates
t1 ~~ c("p1", "p2")*t1
t2 ~~ c("p1", "p2")*t2
t3 ~~ c("p1", "p2")*t3
t4 ~~ c("p1", "p2")*t4
'
fit <- growth(model.syntax, group = "group", data=Demo.growth)
summary(fit)
```

Wow, that's easy enough, thanks Christopher!
