Hi there,

I am running a multilevel mediation model based on latent change scores. I have a significant hypotheses from the proposed model. However, I need additional information in terms of strength of the relationship between the predictor variable on outcome through mediators. Whether this relationship is strong/weak/moderate. Is there anything from the Mplus output that can give that information? Please do guide.

One way is to look at


where the numerator is the indirect effect and the denominator is the standard deviation of the outcome. This says how big the indirect effect is in y SD terms for a one-unit change in x.
