Hi all,

I just ran my model, and it fits really well and all the parameter coefficients are strong and at least moderately high. I was confused though because the Variance reported above the latent variable is zero. The model's structure is four measured variables loading into a single latent variables, which feeds into a single measured variable (see attached). I'm not sure what this means, and can't seem to find an answer anywhere.

Any thoughts? Should I be concerned?

THANK YOU!!

PS......I should note that the little zero appears above the latent variable when I draw it using the Indicator icon. It seems to be setting the intercept value for the latent variable to zero automatically.

**I am trying to show how the variables on far left make up the latent variable in the middle, and measure how much that contributes to the final outcome of addiction.**
