hello john,

(1) Do you intend nemploy and sales to be indicators of compcar? If so, the arrows are going in the wrong direction.

..yes, is lamx1 etc. correct for this part  and lamy1 etc. for the latent y-variable ?

(2) A similar comment applies to sex and age as indicators of personcar, but it's hard to imagine that such a specification would make sense.

.....this is first  an easy example with my data , but why you think it is nonsense that age and sexual status are indicators for a latent variable personalCharacteristics  
(...of course the scale's should be approriate ?)

Many thanks for your comments !
