I ran a SEM with a combination of categorical and continuous indicator variables. I tested for several indirect effects with and without bootstrapping. Without bootstrapping, two out of three of my specific indirect effects were significant, p < .05, and the other wasn't close. With bootstrapping, however, one of the key paths was significant, p < .05, and the other was significant, p < .10. Which result is more valid, if such a thing exists, when modeling with continuous and categorical indicator variables, bootstrapping or not bootstrapping?

What is your sample size?

Sorry it took sssso long to get back, but this analysis was put on hold for a while. The sample size is 868.

Hmm. I think you should send your input, data, output, and license number at support@statmodel.com so we can see exactly what you are finding.
