Hi--

I recently ran a path model using complex samples.

When I look at the "correlations" section of the input, are these correlations weighted correlations--that is, taking into account the sample weights--or are they just regular correlations that we would get if we were to run correlations on another other software not taking account weights?

Thanks!
Kristine

If you use the WEIGHT option, the sample statistics should be weighted.

Hi Linda--

Sorry, but I realized I missed another question regarding the weighted correlations from the sample statistics.

Is there a way to get the significance level of these correlations, given that I would want to know if the variables are significantly correlated, not just the actual correlation values.

Thank you!

We don't provide standard errors or significance levels of correlations

Okay, thanks for letting me know that.

Best,
Kristine
