Mediation - binary variables
Hello, I'm trying to run a mediation model in JASP, which I've previously run using PROCESS in SPSS.
A few things are hindering this.
First, I cannot seem to enter a binary outcome variable - the arrow to select the variable into the 'outcome' box will not highlight.
Nor is it possible to select a binary variable as a mediator.
I can however select a binary var for the predictor.
Now, if I run a separate mediation analysis from this dataset (with scalar mediator and outcome), I get different (n.s.) results to what I've previously got in PROCESS. Why could this be? I've got the same number of boostraps, anything else I need to do to make sure its the same?
Thanks - enjoying the JASP platform, very accessible. Just a few doors I can't open so far!
