### Statistical differences between parameters estimates in PLS

As many scholars here, I have coped the issue of having to assess whether two parameter estimates that are derived from the same sample are statistically different. I would like to recommend for the SmartPLS community the following open-access paper where a nice solution is delivered:
I guess an excel sheet is available upon request to the authors since the first author gave me one. I hope this entry can be useful for the SmartPLS forum.

Thank you Melania for opening this thread,
As you said, despite the fact that nothing is pointed out into the paper's wording, a couple of excel sheets are available upon request to the authors.
Best regards

Dear colleagues,
Thank you Melania for opening the thread. Everyone can find a straightforward way to assess whether two parameter estimates that are derived from the same sample are statistically different in the links below.
