i have a simple model:

fishery ON year;

in which fishery is categorial.

i am using ESTIMATOR = WLS

the effect size of the variable is significant (-3.957)

but the baseline model is rejected
X^2 = 15.659 , df=1 p=0.0001

what is the correct statistical inference from the output.

how can the effect size be significant and the model not?

thanks in advance

Model fit and the significance of parameter estimates are not the same. If you have a model that does not fit the data, the results of this model should not be interpreted.
