Hello,

I am running a path analysis and find that the standardized indirect effects of one exogenous variable are all zero although the effect was significant and the non-standardized coefficients are normal. I am wondering whether this is because the standardized value are too small (<.0001) to be displayed or something is going wrong here. Also, I am using an old version of Mplus 3.0.

Thanks.

Try multiplyin the raw indirect effect with the SD of X and divide by the SD of Y to compute the standardized value yourself.

And you want to upgrade to version 6.1.
