Multi-Group Analysis (MGA) in PLS-SEN

Video link: https://youtu.be/l0TfK4z12D8 Description: PLS-MGA is a multi-group analysis method that has been developed for partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). In this video, we explain the PLS-MGA method as explained by Hair et al. (2018). As an alternative, you may use th...

Re: CTA-PLS using the Two-Stage Approach

The numbers in the resutls look very larger indeed. You probably did not correctly copy, paste, save and import the latent variable scores.

Re: CTA-PLS using the Two-Stage Approach

Sounds reasonable. Just run the two-stage approach as explained here:

Then, just run the CTA-PLS on the second stage.

Can you merge the problematic constructs?

Re: Inquiry about Moderation Results

You find a chapter on moderation in PLS-SEM and the results interpretation here: https://www.smartpls.com/documentation/ ... s-sem-book

The book usually is available in university libraries.

Re: Confusion with convergent validity with formative measure

In that case you may need an additional formative indicator that helps to better cover the domain of formative construct.

Re: Interaction effects using PLS

Avoid the circle path and/or use the latent variables scores from a model without a circular relationship and estimate the structural model with the circular path by using 2SLS (e.g. in the R program).

Re: Categorical moderator variable

I would use the actual age as a single continuous moderator. Thereby, you do not lose any information. Alternatively, compare the third of the youngest against the third of the oldest (leave the middle third out) in a multigroup analysis.

Re: IPMA - Include LVs with non-significant total effect ?

Insignficant total effects and negative ones (when you expect positive ones) are not reasonable for running an IPMA.

Re: Indicators do not show up in Path Model but in Data View

That's usually the case when there are some string values in your dataset, where SmartPLS expects numerical values. Please inspect your dataset, again, and take a look at these instructions: https://www.smartpls.com/documentation/ ... ata-import
