Great suggestion, I am working on the papers and relevant Stata
procedures, Mplus is new to me, will give it a definit try. Thank you
very much Cameron.

Thus, cross-group differences in residual variation will not be absorbed by the model coefficients, and not confound the comparison. But certainly see the papers I recommended so that you gain a good grasp on the key issues. There are indeed good Stata-oriented solutions.
