Specific Indirect effects

Post by LUISRCE » Tue Oct 29, 2019 5:57 pm

Dear colleagues,

I am estimating a model with one exogenous HCM and four endogenous single constructs. I would like to estimate the influence of the first order constructs on these endogenous single constructs. After running the bootstrapping, SmartPLS presents a result labelled as 'SPECIFIC INDIRECT EFFECTS' and in this result I can see exactly the significance of the paths I am looking for, e.g.: FIRST ORDER CONSTRUCT > SECOND ORDER CONSTRUCT > ENDOGENOUS CONSTRUCT. This can be used to estimate the influence of the first order constructs of the HCM on the endogenous constructs?
Thanks a lot!
