MultisiteMediation: Causal Mediation Analysis in Multisite Trials

We implement multisite causal mediation analysis using the methods proposed by Qin and Hong (in press). It enables causal mediation analysis in multisite trials, in which individuals are assigned to a treatment or a control group at each site. It allows for estimation and hypothesis testing for not only the population average but also the between-site variance of direct and indirect effects. This strategy conveniently relaxes the assumption of no treatment-by-mediator interaction while greatly simplifying the outcome model specification without invoking strong distributional assumptions.
