Hi,

I am analyzing 2-1-1 path model with binary mediator (intent2) and outcome (condom) by using MLR. In the results, odds ratios were only given for intent2->condom and no odds ratios were given for independent variables -> intent2. May I ask how I obtain the odds ratios of independent variables? and in this case, is it ok to use MLR instead of other estimators?
I copied my syntax below:
VARIABLE:
NAMES ARE caseid weight cdattit
hivsus norm intent primary
condom intent2;
USEVARIABLES ARE caseid weight cdattit
hivsus norm intent primary
condom intent2 inter;
CATEGORICAL IS condom intent2;
BETWEEN IS cdattit hivsus norm;
WITHIN IS primary inter;
CLUSTER IS caseid;
WEIGHT IS weight;
DEFINE:inter = primary*intent2;
ANALYSIS: TYPE IS TWOLEVEL;
MODEL:
%WITHIN%
condom ON intent2(b)
primary
inter;
%BETWEEN%
cdattit hivsus norm intent2 condom;
intent2 ON cdattit(a);
intent2 ON norm(c);
intent2 ON hivsus(d);
condom ON cdattit;
condom ON norm;
condom ON hivsus;
MODEL CONSTRAINT:
NEW(indb indb1 indb2);
indb=a*b;
indb1=c*b;
indb2=d*b;

Many thanks in advance!

You can create odds ratios by Model constraint, e.g.

or = exp(b);

MLR should be fine here.

Thank you so much!
