This seminar focuses on two topics in causal analysis that are closely related and often confused. Suppose we have three variables, X, M and Y. We say that M is a mediator of the effect of X on Y if X carries its influence on Y at least partly by influencing M, which then influences Y. This is also known as an indirect effect of X on Y through M. On the other hand, we say that M moderates the effect of X on Y if that effect varies in size, sign, or strength as a function of M. This is also known as interaction.
