Hello,<br><br>I'm building a two-level SEM in openBUGS with a mixture of ordered<br>categorical, dichotomous and continuous variables. Some of these<br>variables contain missing values at random. OpenBUGS is able to handle<br>missing values in the continuous variables but crashes if there are<br>missing values in the ordered categorical or dichotomous variables.<br><br>I used the latent variable approach described in Lee 2007 (Structural<br>equation models a Bayesian approach, ch 6 and 7) to handle the<br>categorical and dichotomous variables.
