Simple LR as part of a mediation analysis follows the theoretical model: M = i3 + aX + e3.
One of the models in the stacked analysis is fine... the other one is a bit strange. Why do my residuals look like this?
So, the dependent variable is a continuous latent. The original 10 questions that are used to construct the continuous latent are dichotomous. It is of a non-normal distribution (see below). I have never seen this stepped pattern in the reisiduals. Just the wonder of random-ness or can I understand something about my data from this?
