Commentary: Using Potential Outcomes to Understand Causal Mediation Analysis
Imai, Kosuke; Jo, Booil; Stuart, Elizabeth A.
Multivariate Behavioral Research, v46 n5 p861-873 2011
In this commentary, we demonstrate how the potential outcomes framework can help understand the key identification assumptions underlying causal mediation analysis. We show that this framework can lead to the development of alternative research design and statistical analysis strategies applicable to the longitudinal data settings considered by Maxwell, Cole, and Mitchell (2011).
