Latent variable Correlations

Post by bubach »

Hello all,

how are the "Latent variable Correlations" in SmartPLS calculated?
Are those the Pearson-Correlations?

How can i interpret "LV Index Values"?

Thanks a lot for your help!

ad correlation: yep, that should become clear with a minimum of effort.

ad index value: the literature hints a couple of threads before or use the "search" function of this forum.
