Titre: New developments on mediation theory

Date: Vendredi 16 mars

Lieu et heure: 13h30-15h30, Salle A-544 J, UdM/Pavillon Marie-Victorin

Résumé: Mediation analysis is popular, but many, if not most, mediation studies are based on inadequate designs or analysis strategies. Described in this presentation are requirements and analytical methods for a more scientifically rigorous approach to mediation analysis. Topics include proper research designs for establishing mediation, a reduced role for significance testing, and the need for better awareness by researchers of all this is assumed in mediation studies. The method of Causal Mediation Analysis, which estimates mediation under more realistic assumptions, is introduced. The CMA method is well known in epidemiology, but social scientists could also benefit from this approach.

La conférence se tiendra en anglais et est à entrée libre.
