Is it possible to impose constrains in TSSEM2?

Dear all,

 I'm performing a meta-analysis (data, code, an picture of the desired model attached) using TSSEM.

At the second stage, I would like to test whether the effect a1 is equal to b1, whether a2=b2, and whether a3=b3. Is there any way of constraining these parameters in stage 2? If so, what is the code to do that?



Kind Regards,

Dear Belen,

Dear Belen,

Yes. If you want to constrain the effect between a1 and b1, you may use the same label, say a, for them.
