I have a a dichotomous variable as endogenous variable in the path
analysis, sex(0/1), I wrote the following syntax, is it right? Could
you please provide me some advances?
pathreg (knowledge exogenous_vars) /*
*/ (attitude knowledge exegenous_vars) /*
*/ (sex attitude knowledge exogenous_vars)
More substantively, if sex is 0 = male and 1 = female, I don't see
why it would be endogenous. But, perhaps sex stands for attitudes or
behaviors instead. Also, since sex is a dichotomy, I would think
you'd want to use logit or probit instead.
If you can
