I’ve had a student complete a piece of work with some great data. I am considering re-analysing the data for publication. SEM makes sense, but the model is both formative and reflective. How can I overcome this issue?

    $\begingroup$ One example of a model with both kinds of indicator is a MIMIC model, see, for example: stats.stackexchange.com/questions/189462/… But there's nothing special that you need to do - just put them both in. $\endgroup$ Apr 26, 2018 at 17:06
  • $\begingroup$ Please clarify what "the issue" is here. $\endgroup$
