What are effect sizes for mediation effects and indirect effects in MPlus?
I have tested a hypotheses about mediation in MPlus by path analysis. A model was computed that includes two mediated effects and one indirect effect (no direct effect of x on y). A reviewer asks me to give effect sizes. What are meaningful effect sizes of the mediation effects and the indirect effect?

Usually, relating the indirect effect to the SDs of the exposure and outcome variables suffices. This is also what you get from standardized indirect effects suffice. These are given by Mplus.

Following up the Juul's question, how does one calculate effect sizes for moderated mediation effects in Mplus?

I have 5 IVs, 5Dvs, and 1 Mediator. Gender (dichotomous) is the moderator. The MODEL CONSTRAINT output indicates non-significance.
However, how do I compute the effect sizes?

This general analysis question is suitable for SEMNET.
