I have a case where the dependent variable is categorical or even dichotomous, and I've been using probit for the main (total effect) for the dichotomous dependent variable. I'd like to use _sgmediation_ for the mediational analysis. ---- -sgmediation- was not meant for models with either binary mediators or binary response variables. I suggest you try -binary_mediation- (findit binary_mediation) which estimation using the product of coefficients approach with all of the variables standardized. The command syntax is very similar to -sgmediation-. -- Phil Ender UCLA Statistical Consulting Group * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
