Dear all, I am currently running a mediation analysis and I'm running into some trouble interpretting the insignificance of the variables. - When running a regression for path A, this is significant at 0.017 - When running a regression for path B (not controlling for IV), it is marginally significant at 0.068 - When running a regression for path C (not controlling for mediator), it is significant at 0.004
When I include both the Mediator and the IV predicting the DV, then the signifance level of the IV is 0.009 but the Mediator is insignificant at 0.194.
My question is now, how do I interpret these results? Because in order for a mediation effect to be present, the value of the mediator has to be significant right?
Thank you in advance for your help!
