Suppose i have a model :
X1 ~ a1p*a1 + b1p*b1 + v14p*v14
X2 ~ a2p*a2 + b2p*b2 + v21p*v21 + v24p*v24
X3 ~ a3p*a3 + b3p*b3 + v31p*v31 + v34p*v34
X4 ~ a4p*a4 + b4p*b4
I fit this and get parameter estimates for a1p, a2p, ..., b1p, b2p, ..., v21p etc
But now i want to reconstruct estimates of X1, ..., X4.
Other than writing my own code to do this, (which i have done, painstakingly) does lavaan output this?
If so how do i get at it.
I have read the tutorial and don't see anything relating to this which seems crazy!!
I am obviously missing something basic.
Can someone please help?
