Interpreting multiple mediation effects
Structural Equation Modeling
posted on Thursday, January 28, 2010 - 5:18 am
I have a setup with 3 mediator variables (M1,M2,M3) mediating one independent variable X on a dependent variable Y. The 3 mediator variables are dummies capturing only 0 (no) or 1 (yes).
I now get the result that the three specific indirect effects are insignificant but the total indirect effect turns out be significant.
How do I interprete this? Something only if all mediator variables are present (meaning all are 1) the mediation takes place?
thx in advance,

That sounds plausible.
