st: Alternative to sobel/Goodman test ?
I'm searching for an alternative way of testing the indirect effect in my stcox modell.
IV /_c/c'_\ Mortality
I want to test the indirect effect of my IV (Education) via my MV(Income) on mortality. This is usually done by the sobel Test (cf. Baron & Kenny JPSP 1986 pp.1173 & sgmediation.ado ).
This way is not applicable in my case, because the relationship between IV & MV can be described using OLS whereas MV-Mort and IV-Mort are specified using a survival model like stcox.
I'm searching for a formula for the standard deviation (sd_indirect) of my indirect effect (b_indirect= c-c') to conduct a t-test.
I would appreciate any hints!
