Hi, In multiple group path analysis, is it possible to do a Wald test, using Model Test, for equality constraints on subgroup-specific total indirect effects (using MODEL INDIRECT)? It's clear from the user guide how to do one (use model indirect for multiple groups) and the other (model test), but is it possible to combine them? If so, would it be possible to post the syntax somewhere? Thanks, Aniruddha Das.
Indirect effects are calculated after model estimation. To compare indirect effects across groups, you can use MODEL CONSTRAINT to define the indirect effects and also to test if they are equal. See the user's guide for more information on MODEL CONSTRAINT.
