st: Path model interpretation
I am writing to get some help regarding the relatioinship among variables.
I have two independent variables (A and B) and a dependent variable (C).
Theoretically, A has a negative effect on C and B has a positive effect on C. Also, A has a negative effect on B.
Without path from A to B, each effects appear to be as expected.
However, if I add a path from A to B which is negative, then the path from A to C becomes positive, which is theoretically assumed to be negative.
How can I understand this?
Any comments will be appreicated.
