Hi, I'm trying to execute a path evaluation with a variable that has actually non-integer values. Together a result, I'm gaining an error message. Is it possible to exactly this without editing and enhancing my variable? Thanks

It sounds choose you are placing the variable on the CATEGORICAL list. If that is categorical, it must not have non-integer values. Maybe you are reading the data incorrectly.

You are watching: Factor variables may not contain noninteger values

Hello, i am gaining a similar problem; however, I confirm the data and also everyone is coded together either a 1,2 or 3. Any kind of suggestions?

I have actually a variable that has 7 bespeak values: 0, .5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, and also 3. I placed it one the categorical list and got the error message around non-integar values. Is there a means that I can treat the variable as a categorical change or perform I have to model it together a constant variable? Thanks.

The values of a categorical variable have actually no meaning. Just adjust the worths to integers: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6

Hi i am having actually the same problem as Melissa Kimber *** ERROR Categorical variable BPCNTR consists of non-integer values I have actually checked the input document on notepad and the variable is coded 1 or 2 i went earlier to my initial SPSS document and conserved it as dat file and tried again. Very same result. any aid appreciated

medtox.org. You are most most likely reading the data incorrectly or you have actually blanks in the data set.

Hello, ns am likewise having the same difficulty as both Melissa and also Rohan (above). I'm make the efforts to review in a categorical variable, and also have checked that the values space integer in the .dat file but the output proceeds to state the following "*** ERROR Categorical change SCT1OGIV contains non-integer values." I have tried running this plenty of times and continues to be a problem. Is over there a way if / just how I might be reading in the data incorrectly? numerous thanks.

It is likely that you have actually blanks in the data collection which cause free format data come be review incorrectly. If you can't number this out, send the files and also your license number to support

*** ERROR in change command Categorical variable U20 consists of invalid and/or non-integer values. trouble with: GPCM I check out this error trying to operation an IRT model in mplus. I am employing the users guide instance "5.5: generalised partial credit transaction model". Ns am copying/downloading the example input and data documents as is. The file will operation if i drop (gpcm) out of the command line in the example. But I am wanting to run the gpcm.

Dear Drs. Muthen, i am clues a manifest-latent design (M2) as argued by swamp et al. (2009; DOI: 10.1080/0027317090333366). My factor indicators room ordered and also I have, thus, computed a median across the item on the within-level. In some cases four item are used to calculation the median and the result medians are subsequently not every integers. Together mplus does not accept float values as categorical values, ns thought about rounding the values, yet I am not sure if the is appropriate. How would you indicate to law the float values in this case? thank you so lot in advance
Bengt O. Muthenposted on Thursday, august 03, 2017 - 5:36 pm
If you compute a median, you would treat the variable as continuous, no categorical.
Deniz posted on Friday, respectable 04, 2017 - 3:57 am
Thank friend for her answer. Simply to make sure, you would suggest that ns treat the medians as continuous variables and therefore conduct a straight multilevel regression? If this is the case, could I also interpret standardization results? say thanks to you therefore much.
Bengt O. Muthenposted ~ above Friday, respectable 04, 2017 - 2:27 pm
Yes and also yes.

Dear Dr Muthen ns am specifing a multilevel design Dependent variable - categorical 0 and 1; lacking -99. do the efforts to run the error occures categorical variable includes non-integer values. I checked data. Everything is ok. countless thanks

Hello Drs. Muthen, I'm suffering a similar issue as reported by Aiden and Martin above. I keep gaining the following error message: *** ERROR in variable command Categorical variable Y34 includes invalid and/or non-integer values. difficulty with: PCM The variables are ordered categorical and I evidenced that they take it on just values (0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7).

Further clarify on the over post: when I offered the course variable output of first estimation step as intake of 3rd estimation step, I got the following error message.
