IPMA - Include LVs with non-significant total effect ?

Post by agalvez » Sun Aug 11, 2019 10:56 pm

Hi

When asessing structural model relationships, what happen if some LVs’ total effects (importance) are non-significant explaining the target LV? Do I have to include them in the IPMA? Does this make sense?

Another issue... Negative total effects are included in the map as "negative" or as "absolute values" ? I think I have to include them as absolute values, since the purpose is to compare their relative importance with other constructs. Is this correct?

Thank you in advance
