I have a dataset of 276 nurses nested in 56 units. I want to test a model as I attach for your perusal. In my model, the only individual level outcome variable is nurse performance and the rest are at the unit level. I wonder if I can test this model using multilevel path analysis in Mplus.

Best regards,


Group LMX --> group level conflict --> group level Climate-->individual performance

Yes, you can do this in Mplus. Individual performance is specified on Within as


and then on Between your consider its random mean (the part that varies over Between-level units) as a DV in a regression on Between-level variables in line with the mediation model you show above:

indperf ON climate;
climate ON .....

The Between-level covariates need to be on the Between= list.

Thank you! I guess I can also test the interaction effect of two between-level variables on another between-level variable such as

group LMX * group interdependence --> group conflict
