Dear statalist,

I try to run an LCA Model with gsem using four variables (three are binary, one is ordered with four categories). None of the variables has a striking slope distribution or any outliers.

My sample contains 1020 observations.

When I use the command stated below stata displays the error message "initial values not feasible".

This is my code:

Is this a problem I can solve with a faster PCU or indicates the error message that there are problems with my data? As I couldn't find problems in the data by checking the distributions and looking for outliers what are other possible sources for this error?

Best,

Franziska
