Re: Control Variable

Dr. Becker, I have been facing another problem. Bootstrapping doesn't exhibit appropriate result (all Zero values) with the inclusion of three dummies (age1, age2, age3) as control variables while assuming the first age group i.e. 18-26 as the reference group (most number of participants are from th...

Re: Control Variable

Dr. Becker, Please get me corrected. Since there are four different age groups, I have to create three dummies (e.g. Age1, Age2, Age3). Now, I can assume the first age group i.e. 18-26 as the reference group since most of the participants are from this group. Now I have to include Age1, Age2, and Ag...

Re: Control Variable

Dr. Becker,
If values for 4 different age groups are mentioned as: 18-26=1, 27-34=2, 35-50=3, 51 onward=4, could I go without creating dummies and include as it is, as a single indicator construct?

Control Variable

Hi, Suppose, age and gender are considered to be control variables in my model. Values for gender are as follows: 1=female, 2=male (nominal qualitative). Values for 5 different age groups are denoted by 1 to 5 (ordinal qualitative). Should I simply include these two as single indicator constructs in...

Discriminant validity

1) In Fornell-Larcker Criterion table few non-diagonal elements show negative values (Specifically where the latent variables have been conceptualized to have negative effect in the proposed model). Whether the software output is supposed to exhibit these type of raw values (with negative sign) or t...

Re: Multiple mediation

Thank you Dr. Becker. I think the book got published before incorporation of that particular feature in the latest version of the software; that's why they suggested manual calculation.

Multiple mediation

Hi, I want to check mediating effect of five different intervening variables simultaneously, while examining indirect effect of three IVs on one particular DV. Each IV has been conceptualized to have effect on the DV through those five intervening variables (parallel). If I use latest version of sma...

Re: Relative significance of exogenous variables

Suppose, 5 independent variables are a, b, c, d, and e and the dependent variable is y. I want to check relative influence of 5 IVs on the dependent one. However, I want to check whether 'a' (IV) also acts as a mediator between 'b' (IV) and y (DV). Case 1: when I test structural model without mediat...

Re: Path significance

Furthermore, when I went for testing a different structural model by considering those new constructs as the mediator, all the indirect effects become significant (while direct paths are still not significant). Is this a case of full mediation?

Relative significance of exogenous variables

Hello, Suppose there are five independent variables and one dependent variable in a model. All the five independent variables are hypothesized to have direct influence on the dependent variable. However, one of the independent variables has also been hypothesized to be a mediator between another ind...

Path significance

Hello, While testing a particular structural model to obtain the direct effect of 3 independent variables on the dependent variable, all the path relationships get statistically significant at 5% significance level. Now, when two new constructs are added as the antecedents of that particular depende...
