Doing Statistical Mediation and Moderation - Methodology in the Social Sciences (Paperback)Paul E. Jose (author)
- We can order this
Written in a friendly, conversational style, this book offers a hands-on approach to statistical mediation and moderation for both beginning researchers and those familiar with modeling. Starting with a gentle review of regression-based analysis, Paul Jose covers basic mediation and moderation techniques before moving on to advanced topics in multilevel modeling, structural equation modeling, and hybrid combinations, such as moderated mediation. User-friendly features include numerous graphs and carefully worked-through examples; ""Helpful Suggestions"" about procedures and pitfalls; ""Knowledge Boxes"" delving into special topics, such as dummy coding; and end-of-chapter exercises and problems (with answers). The companion website (www.guilford.com/jose-materials) provides downloadable data and syntax files for the book's examples and exercises, as well as links to Jose's online programs, MedGraph and ModGraph. Appendices present SPSS, Amos, and Mplus syntax for conducting the key types of analyses.

"Jose has done a terrific job of laying out the importance of investigating mediation and moderation effects, as well as providing strategies to address them. Strengths of this clearly written book include the link between mediation and moderation theory and the statistical analysis testing these theories. The examples will prove useful to researchers in many fields."--David MacKinnon, PhD, Department of Psychology, Arizona State University
"One of the first volumes to focus on mediation and moderation, this book explains their differences from historical, substantive, and modeling perspectives. It is abundant with 'how-to' examples and provides readers with modeling tools that can be used directly in research. This is a suitable supplemental text for intermediate or advanced courses dealing with regression, hierarchical linear modeling, or structural equation modeling. The inclusion of cutting-edge topics such as mediated moderation and moderated mediation will attract more advanced quantitative researchers as well."--Feifei Ye, PhD, Department of Psychology in Education, University of Pittsburgh
