3 April 2019 at 3.00 pm CET: "Mediation and moderation in SEM analysis: an example with national level data" by Francisco Liñán

In this seminar, we will present a detailed review of the empirical analysis carried out in our paper from 2013 [Liñán, F., Romero, I., & Fernández-Serrano, J. (2013). Necessity and opportunity entrepreneurship: The mediating effect of culture. Revista de Economía Mundial, 33, 21-47]. It analyses the role of income (measured as GDPpc) on the entrepreneurial activity rate (TEA rate and Opportunity/necessity ratio). It particularly considers the mediating role of cultural dimensions (Schwartz, 1994). Additionally, it considers the effect of culture on entrepreneurship, including a moderating role of GDPpc. The webinar will explain how these mediation and moderation analyses can be carried out and the interpretation of the results.
