Question
I did a mediation analysis with one mediator (with control variable) and used PROCESS. My mediation analysis revealed:
Path c = significant (total effect)
path a = not significant (but the model is significant with control variable)
path c' = significant (direct effect)
path b = significant.
Based on the 1000 bootstrapped interval there is an indirect effect, but insignificant
But what does it say about the relation between X and Y. Can I still say M is mediator on X by Y?How I can interpret this result?
Thanks in advance!
Question
I have small sample (n1= 50; n2= 55) for comparing two groups coming from two different countries. I know that I must run measurement invariance for my each measures for different countries. Can I run measurement invariance despite of small samples? Or do you have another recommend? Thanks
