Test for significant differences between path coefficients

Post by zorrn » Tue Aug 16, 2016 12:18 pm

Hello everyone,

I want to test if two path coefficients in a single model (no multi group comparison) differ significantly from each other.
I notice the following paper suggest to use Bootstrap percentile p value to test the significance.
Chin, W.W., Yong, J.K., and Lee, G. 2013. "Testing the Differential Impact of Structural Paths in Pls Analysis: A Bootstrapping Approach," in: New Perspectives in Partial Least Squares and Related Methods, H. Abdi, W.W. Chin, V.E. Vinzi, G. Russolillo and L. Trinchera (eds.). New York: Springer, pp. 221-229.

I want to consult you how to get this a percentile bootstrap p-value from Smartpls 2?
Thanks in advance!

You will only get those only in SmartPLS 3.

When you run the bootstrapping choose "Percentile Bootstrap" in the Advanced Settings for Confidence Interval Method
