Does anyone know if it is possible to build a multi-level mixed effects model
with a latent DV using glamm?

I have a unobserved response variable (political trust) that is comprised of
three observed variables (trust in police, trust in government, trust in
politicians).  I am trying to run a multi-level model with fixed effects IVs at
the individual and neighborhood level and a random intercept for the
neighborhood grouping level.

However, I cannot figure out how to construct the DV as a latent variable.  I
have been trying to use the eqs function but that does not seem to work.

Thanks,

-Rahsaan
