Dear Lavaan team,
Thanks for all your work! It is invaluable for many of us! My PhD will have to acknowledge this forum too!
I have a technical question of how lavaan deals with continuous data when WLSMV is used.
I have an SEM were the vast majority of my variables are ordered. Therefore I've chosen a WLSMV estimator. One manifest variable is used in the structural part.
I've read few papers and many posts on why WLSMV is better for ordinal data rather than ML. But should I worry of the opposite (WLSMV not being proper to deal with a continuous variable)?
Thanks a lot,
