    How to run a path analysis in a bayesian framework?

    Hello all! I am trying to run a path analysis to understand how reproductive output (i.e., number of offspring that survive until adulthood) is directly versus indirectly related to exploration and parental investment in a frog species. I want to use a methodology that has been used in a few...

    Suspicious about perfect fit in SEM (CFI = 1, RMSEA = 0)

    I'm new to path analysis in SEM and suspicious about my model fit indices in R / lavaan: lavaan 0.6-6 ended normally after 27 iterations Estimator ML Optimization method NLMINB Number of free parameters...

    Partial least squares (path analysis) - why and how to interpret attached results?

    For my research, I have a model with various mediators and one moderating variable (see image). I derived my data from an experiment. Short summary: - Incentive structure is the main IV (three treatment groups) - Risk behaviour is the DV (continuous variable) - Accountability is another...

    [amos] Paths non-significant, but good model fit?

    I never had this problem. I have a model that checks out all good from chi to RMSEA. However, all my path loadings are small and way non-significant. What? Has anyone eve had this? If so, how do you interpret this?

    How to report the results of a complex path analysis in AMOS?

    So, I started with a model with 5 IVs and 7 DVs. This model had a poor fit (RMSEA = 0.405, CFI=0.760 or so). Most of my hypotheses were not confirmed, i.e. many regression coefficients were not significant, so there were no relationships between many variables. Next, I started to prune the...

    path analysis

    If I wish to do path analysis, how would I put the these variables in a model? I have 2 IVs (e.g. A and B), 1 DV (e.g. C). And A,B and C can be measured using questionnaires. For each variable, A has 2 sub-constructs, (e.g. subA1 and subA2) B also has 2 sub-constructs, (e.g. subB1 and...

    Path Analysis- SAS PROC CALIS: Fitted correlation warning message

    Hello All, I need some help running a path analysis in proc calis. My ultimate goal is to assess which explanatory variables have direct and indirect effects on my response variable to gain a better understanding of which variables are more related. After running the code, I received two...

    Can you suggest any good reference on path analysis please?

    This is not basically a research question rather an ask for help to provide me with some useful references on Path Analysis. This seems to be a trendy technique, but looks a little bit complicated. Is there any downloadable complete free book or PDF where I can find details on its theory and...

    HELP! SEM and path analysis with time frames

    I am having trouble writing the methods section for my dissertation research. I am using SEM/path analysis, and I cannot figure out how to include multilevel analysis for one of my IVs. One of my IVs has 6 levels of time associated with it. The outcome on the DV is being compared between each...

    EQS Path Analysis

    Hi, everybody! I need some help with the interpretation of my Path Analysis output in EQS. How come when I use the FIML (maximum likelihood estimation for missing data), the robust method does not operate or show in the output? I hope someone could point me to why it happens. Thanks very...

    comparing path coefficients

    Hi all, I've got a question when conducting a path analysis. I've used one sample group and created three different path analysis models (which are mostly identical, except for one mediator.) To make my questions clear, the three models are illustrated below: 1) a---> b1--->c...

    SEM: negative coefficients

    I am doing a SEM/path analysis (using AMOS 17) find out out what predicts creative problem solving (CPS). Essentially I found that certain family processes predict one's personality, which in turn predicts CPS. This was based on the medium/strong correlations, but one sub-factor (father's...
