1. ### Mediation analysis: 3 binary variables

Hi, In my research I want to test a model with 3 binary variables: -X = year (year x, year x) -Y = volunteering (no, yes) -M = caregiving (no, yes) Since this is not possible with the Process macro, is it possible using the Baron and Kenny method? Thanks in advance!
2. ### Moderated Mediation in STATA with SEM

Hi! I’m in dire need of some urgent help! I’m trying to do a moderated mediation analysis in STATA with the following variables (see also the figure below): IV: Identity - Measured on scale from 1 to 5 DV: Torture Attitudes - Measured on scale from 1 to 7 Mediator: Perceived threat - Measured...
3. ### Moderation and Mediation in one analysis?

Hey everyone I'm new here and I hope that I'm in the correct forum and someone can help me :) I actually feel like I have a very basic question but I am quite new to statistical analysis and would be grateful for any help! I am writing a research paper for class and chose my own research...
4. ### SPSS-PROCESS-HAYES Mediation-Model 84

While HAYES offers guidelines on how select his basic models in SPSS (http://www.regorz-statistik.de/en/tutorials_en.html), I am trying to write the syntax for his Model 84 (picture below) I have 956 respondents, and my X (indep. var) has 4 cases. My solution: process...
5. ### moderation/mediation repeated measures

Hello everyone, I need help with interaction effects in multiple regression analysis. Study went like this: 120 participants solved 20 base-rate neglect tasks which all differed in ratio and congruence (mediators/moderators). They all solved statistical reasoning test (predictor). Correct...
6. ### What's adequate sample size for single mediator model?

Hi, I have set up a single mediator model to explain cases of COVID-19/million. I generated four regression equations using online software: 1) Cases COVID-19/million = .44234 x # Christians/10,000 + 2475.65082 2) # international adoptions made by a country between 1999 and 2016 =...
7. ### Can I use Hayes' PROCESS macro for full mediation research models?

Hi all, I got the advice to use Hayes' PROCESS macro through SPSS for my research model, specifically model 4 and model 7. However, these models represent partial mediation, while my research model is full mediation. Hence, I was wondering whether I can use them for my analysis. If so, do I...
8. ### Control variables in mediation analysis?

Hi, I want to conduct a mediation analysis, which will investigate whether the change in depressive symptoms during treatment (time) is mediated by the change in OCD symptoms. Currently, I have time as my predictor, OCD symptoms as my mediator and depressive symptoms (at time t+1) as my...
9. ### Should I compute my scales by averaging scores or by summing?

Hi everyone I am conducting a research involving a serial mediation analysis using Hayes's Process (Model 6).My scales are all Likert type except one (this one measures Borderline personality semptoms in which 1=Yes, 0=No) Should I compute my scales by average or by total score? It doesn't make...
10. ### drawing up a mediation model with 2 predictors and 1 mediator

Hello all, I was hoping someone could help my understand where a certain value comes from in my data output (using SPSS). I have performed a hierarchical multiple linear regression and the used PROCESS to find that my model has 2 predictor variables which both go through the 1 mediator variable...
11. ### Is it possible to test this moderated multiple mediation model?

Dear friends, For my masterthesis I want to test the following model. The effect of transformational leadership on learning motivation. Mediators are the three basal needs of the selfdetermination theory. So there are multiple mediations. These mediations are moderated by perceived workload...
12. ### Mediation analysis results write up

Hello everyone! I am currently writing up my results from my moderation analysis and I am having some trouble interpretting what the results mean (I am new to SPSS! :( ) My hypothesis is to test whether social comparison has an impact on self esteem levels through the use of social media. So...
13. ### mediation in a mixed repeated-measures design

Hello to everyone :) I write to ask an advice about which type of analysis I should perform in the following situation. I have 2 groups: treatment group placebo group And two sessions of measurement for each group: session 1 (pre-treatment) session 2 (post-treatment) At session 1 and 2 I...
14. ### The difference of means as a fulfilled precondition for a mediation analysis

The preconditions for a simple mediation analysis according to Hayes (2013) are statistically significant associations between X (the independent variable) and M (the mediator) as well as associations between M and Y (the dependent variable). In the case of a dichotomous independent variable...

16. ### Zero order correlation negative, Direct effect Positive

Hi, I am performing mediation analysis, and have first of all looked at the correlation between variables. The zero order correlation between X and Y is positive and significant. However in the mediation analysis, the direct effect of X on Y (after holding the mediator constant) has a...
17. ### How do I pose a hypothesis for a partial correlation?

Hello everyone, in my thesis I have following hypothesis: 3a: Internet skills are positively correlated with the frequency of experiencing risks online 3b: The positive correlation between internet skills and the frequency of experiencing risks online is at least partly caused by the amount...
18. ### Mediation with PROCESS Macro - Dependent variables as covariates

Hi there! I have a model with 3 IV, 2 mediators and 2 DV. With PROCESS macro in SPSS I want to test for mediation effects. PROCESS allows only one IV and one DV per analysis. Thus, I am aware when testing indirect effects for one IV, know all other IVs should be placed as covariates. However...
19. ### mediation results are not in line with compression of glmm consisted models

hi all, I'll begin with my two question and all the related information (description of the research and the data and full output) will follow. 1. When i execute model1 (glmm with random intercept only for subjects): predictor (suppBin) and outcome (DtlsBinUp) and pre-intervention variables...
20. ### Mediated regression (parallel): Opposing effects → how to interpret total effect?

Hi everyone! In my student assistant job I had to to test a model of mediated regression, with various variables mediating the effect of A on B. I used the SPSS process tool. Considering that the mediating variables were conceptually related I tested the model with parallel mediation...
