Hi,

I modeled a path analysis involving multiple mediators with continuous outcome var. I requested STDYX output, but it only shows standardized estimates without the S.E., est/S.E., or p-value columns. Below is my syntax:

ANALYSIS: BOOTSTRAP = 5000 ;
MODEL:
rde ON cea ;
rc2pe ON rde age ;
rc2ee ON rde age ;
rc2pd ON rde ;
rc2ed ON rde ;
cesd ON rde rc2pe rc2ee rc2pd rc2ed ;
rc2pe WITH rc2ee rc2pd rc2ed ;
rc2ee WITH rc2pd rc2ed ;
rc2pd WITH rc2ed ;
MODEL INDIRECT:
cesd IND rc2pe rde ;
cesd IND rc2ee rde ;
cesd IND rc2pd rde ;
cesd IND rc2ed rde ;
OUTPUT: SAMPSTAT STANDARDIZED(STDYX) CINTERVAL(BCBOOTSTRAP) ;

Am I missing something?

thanks,
isok

We don't give standard errors for standardized coefficients when the BOOTSTRAP option is used.

Thanks Linda,

I was confused because output for indirect effects had SE, est/se, and p-value columns shown, but not for the direct effects. Running the syntax without the bootstrap option DOES give me all of the columns!

Thanks,

I am using the model indirect command and my output only includes total indirect and specific indirect effects - no direct effects or total effects are provided in the output. How can I obtain the direct effects and total effects?

See the last part of the MODEL INDIRECT description on page 691 of the Version 7 user's guide.

Great, I found the answer there. I ran it without specifying the mediator (e.g., y3 IND x1) and got the full output I was looking for. Thanks so much.
