New seminar by Statistical Horizons focuses on two topics in causal analysis that are closely related and often confused. The 5 day seminar will hopes to teach about the underlying principles and the practical applications of these methods. The seminar is divided roughly into three parts:
1. Partitioning effects into direct and indirect components, and how to quantify and test hypotheses about indirect effects.
2. Estimating, testing, probing, and visualizing interactions in linear models.
3. Integrating moderation and mediation by discussing how a mechanism can be contingent and how to determine statistically whether an indirect effect is moderated.
This course will be helpful for researchers in any field—including psychology, sociology, education, business, human development, political science, public health, communication—and others who want to learn how to apply the latest methods in moderation and mediation analysis using readily-available software packages such as SPSS and SAS. Participants should have a basic working knowledge of the principles and practice of multiple regression and elementary statistical inference.
