I am trying to test a mediation hypothesis using coefficients from logistic
regression analyses (x, m, and y are all dichotomous). I am running a test
of significance using MacKinnon and Dwyer's adaptation of Sobel's test
(i.e., correcting for different scales of coefficients in cases of a
In order to make this correction I need to compute the covariance between x
and m. I have searched various R packages and the R-help page archive and
cannot find a way to do this in R.
Does anyone know how to compute the covariance between two dichotomous
variables in R? It seems like there should be a very simple answer to this
question, but I cannot find it.
Thanks in advance!
