Mediation analysis in Python

June 1 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Rackham Building, Earl Lewis Room, 3rd Floor East

Mediation analysis is a way to probe mechanistic hypotheses using data.  It takes a step beyond standard regression analysis, by considering whether certain independent variables may mediate the effects of other independent variables.  While such questions usually cannot be definitively resolved using easily-obtained data, mediation analysis remains an informative process for obtaining a deeper understanding of theoretical and empirical considerations in a research study.  In this workshop we will review the basic ideas of mediation analysis, and illustrate their use via case studies with the Python Statsmodels package.
