See the following website for a better understanding of how you use and interpret binary_mediation. http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/faq/binary_mediation.htm Ariel Date: Sun, 03 Jul 2011 15:44:09 -0400 From: Pina Valle <gv08d@fsu.edu> Subject: Re: st: binary mediation command Even when using percentile confidence intervals, is this output relevant since I am trying to determine the proportion mediated by the indirect effect? Indirect effects with binary response variable evercoh indir_1 = .00601173 (adrel, binary) total indirect = .00601173 direct effect = .10223182 total effect = .10824356 c_path = .10680445 proportion of total effect mediated = .05553895 ratio of indirect to direct effect = .05880491 Binary models use logit regression Thanks Pina - ----- Original Message ----- From: Philip Ender <ender97@gmail.com> Date: Wednesday, June 15, 2011 4:21 pm Subject: Re: st: binary mediation command To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Pina Valle wrote: > > >I am trying to test mediation with a dichotomous outcome, and I > have looked around and found a command in >STATA called > binary_mediation.
