Hi, my name is marco and i have a question.

i have a panel-model with 4 latent variables. i have specified the direct effects from x(t1) to y(t2) as well as all indirect effects from x(t1) to y(t2).

I' m not sure how to interpret the results.

The direct effect from x(t1) to y(t2) is not significant. the total indirect effect (and so the total effect) is significant but very small (b=0,08). But none of the specific indirect effects from x(t1)to y(t2) is significant (there are about 10 specific indirect effects in my model)

how can I interpret this?

Thank you for your answers

This general interpretation question is better suited for the SEMNET discussion forum.
