I am now using Type=Imputation, to conduct multigroup multilevel path analysis based on plausible value. I encountered three problems.
1. When testing the equality of the path coefficient. E.g. Model test: F_1=M_1; F_2=M_2; I got a significant result. However, when I do the test separately in two run, each of them was not significant?
Which result should I rely on?

2. I tried DIFFTEST; however, I cannot find a proper method of estimation to run DIFFTEST and multigroup multilevel analysis in one run. Do you have any suggestion?

3.Is there any way to compute indirect effect when using "TYPE=Imputation" for plausible value?

Many thanks.

1-2. MODEL TEST computes a joint test which is more powerful. You should use MODEL TEST.

3. Use the MODEL CONSTRAINT command.
