Dear Expert,

My model contains 6 paths, total effects showed 10 values. I understand that the max no. of paths should be 10 also.

If I compare the strength of the paths, I put the 6 paths in order of sequence, how about the other 4 paths? How to interpret them?

Thank you.

Regards,

Sara

Hi,

The others are the indirect effects which can be calculated as the product of the two effects . for example

Direct path of AB=0.2

Indirect path AC*CB => 0.8*0.5=0.4

Total effect=AB+( AC*CB)= 0.2+0.4=0.6
