Each dataset contains data on a different candidate mediator and has different number of study matrices with different patterns of missing data.For some of the datasets, tssem1 and tssem2 seem to run perfectly well, openmx status=0, no error or warning messages, and there are ubound and lbound for me to interpret the indirect effect and direct effect. For other datasets, openmx status=0, but I see…See More
"Dear Mike and other users,
I am encountering the same problem. I have a smaller sample of 15 studies with a 5-variable matrix (1 binary variable, 4 continuous variables), but all 15 studies contribute data to every cell. Every study matrix is…"
Thanks for letting us know that there are no simple or clear guidelines. I guess we just have to make a decision now based on what is practical for extracting data from studies, and then later use a trial-and-error approach to reduce…"
