New developments on mediation theory

The Société statistique de Montréal invites you to attend a conference by Professor Rex B. Kline, department of Psychology, Concordia University, Friday, March 16th, 1 :30 to 3 :30, at pavillon Marie-Victorin de l’Université de Montréal, salle A-544 J.

Mediation analysis is popular, but many, if not most, mediation studies are based on inadequate designs or analysis strategies. Described in this presentation are requirements and analytical methods for a more scientifically rigorous approach to mediation analysis. Topics include proper research designs for establishing mediation, a reduced role for significance testing, and the need for better awareness by researchers of all this is assumed in mediation studies. The method of Causal Mediation Analysis, which estimates mediation under more realistic assumptions, is introduced. The CMA method is well known in epidemiology, but social scientists could also benefit from this approach.
