mediation.test {bda} | R Documentation |
To compute statistics and p-values for the Sobel test. Results for three versions of "Sobel test" are provided: Sobel test, Aroian test and Goodman test.
mediation.test(mv,iv,dv)
mv |
The mediator variable. |
iv |
The independent variable. |
dv |
The dependent variable. |
To test whether a mediator carries the influence on an IV to a DV. Missing values will be automatically excluded with a warning.
a table showing the values of the test statistics (z-values) and the corresponding p-values for three tests, namely the Sobel test, Aroian test and Goodman test, respectively.
