    multiple mediators and multiple dvs - different results AMOS and MEDIATE (Hayes)

    I have a path model (longitudinal data): 1 independent variable (iv), 4 potential mediators (ms), 4 dependent variables (dvs); I compared models (chi square difference test) with and without direct effects of the iv on the dvs and the models did not differ, i.e. I chose the more parsimonious...

    [AMOS] No BIC value given

    I would like to test two different (and competing) CFA-models in AMOS. Both of the these used the same nine manifest variables. In one of them, there are four latent variables, in the other two. After doing some (admittedly not extremely thorough) research on model comparisons I had planned to...

    Analyzing panel data with 3 time points: latent growth/curve models

    Hello, I have panel data containing 3 time points. Some of the papers I read used latent curve models. I'm trying to employ this idea as well but there were some bumps in the road. First: I'm using AMOS, but it seems that this program is only equipped to deal with one latent variable that...

    AMOS Bootstrapping - Mean Chi Square/df?

    Hi, I am working on a project modelling a variety of psychological outcomes for AIDS-affected youth in South Africa. Inevitably, some of our variables are not normally distributed, so we have used the bootstrapping procedure available in AMOS to estimate paremeters in the model...

    AMOS- group comparison within group

    I have performed an experiment wherein the same people got to rate product 1 and product 2 on several items. These items together form latent constructs. I am modeling a simple model where I estimate the paths between 1 independent latent variable, a mediator (latent) and a dependent (observed)...

    Latent growth model with seqential-cohort design

    Hallo, I am trying to run a latent growth model with four time points using an accelerated or seqential cohort design. One group has data for the first 3 measruement points and the second group provides data for measurement points 2-4. As I understand running such a model should be...

    AMOS SEM model drawing rules

    hi! This is my first attempt to draw a model in SPSS AMOS 19. I am confused by seeing that I cannot draw covariance arrow between two variables, A and B provided there is a path arrow pointing from C to one of them. Could you explain it to me? What is the difference between drawing two...

    Problem with AMOS View Text

    For, some reason, when I try to view text output in AMOS, I am getting an error I have never received before that states: "system.Runtime.InteropServices.COMExceotion(0x800A0153):Creating an instance of the COM component with CLSID" and then continues. Anyone know why I might suddenly be...
