### Re: latent variable score

Posted:

**Mon Nov 06, 2017 9:43 am**You are talking about higher order latent variable:

- If the first order LVs have about the same number of indicators, use the repeated indicators approach (see Wetzels et al., 2009, p.181)

- If the number of indicators are very different one of another, it is better to use de two step approach (see Wilson, & Henseler, 2007).
