Analyses of MIFAS data are conducted primarily in the statistical modeling program Mplus. This section contains an archive of the Mplus syntax files for scientific publications from the MIFAS. This provides formal documentation for the statistical models published using data from the MIFAS, and is designed to supplement material reported in published papers.
