Mediation Resources

Statistical mediation has become one of the predominate models for the study of how an intervention leads to changes in behavior. This model was first proposed by Baron and Kynny in 1986 (Baron & Kenny, 1986) and the work by a number of authors (MacKinnon, 1994, 2008; MacKinnon & Dwyer, 1993; Sobel, 1990) has increased the practical utility of this powerul statistical approach. We provide SPSS and SAS programming which we have developed for the analysis of single mediator models with continuous variables (Dudley, Benuzillo, & Carrico, 2004) and binary variables (Jasti, Dudley, & Goldwater, 2008). We also encourage you to visit one or more of several helpful sites:
