Hello,

I am running a multi-level (2-2-1) mediation model. I would like to utilize the monte carlo bootstrapped confidence intervals for estimating the indirect effects of the model. I'm having trouble understanding how to enter the commands in order to get this.

Here is my syntax for the model I have run if it helps

USEVARIABLES ARE
group m controlv y x;

BETWEEN ARE m controlv x;

CLUSTER IS group;

ANALYSIS: TYPE IS TWOLEVEL RANDOM;

MODEL:
%WITHIN%
y;
%BETWEEN%
y;
m ON x(a);
y ON m(b);
y ON x(c);
y m ON controlv;

MODEL CONSTRAINT:
NEW(indb);
indb=a*b;

OUTPUT: CINTERVAL;
TECH1 TECH3 TECH8;

Thank you!

Bootstrap for MonteCarlo simulations works in recent Mplus versions. Use

Bootstrap = 500;

in the Analysis command and request Cinterval(bootstrap) in the Output command.
