maczic: Mediation Analysis for Count and Zero-Inflated Count Data

Performs causal mediation analysis for count and zero-inflated count data without or with a post-treatment confounder; calculates power to detect prespecified causal mediation effects, direct effects, and total effects; performs sensitivity analysis when there is a treatment- induced mediator-outcome confounder as described by Cheng, J., Cheng, N.F., Guo, Z., Gregorich, S., Ismail, A.I., Gansky, S.A. (2018) <doi:10.1177/0962280216686131>. Implements Instrumental Variable (IV) method to estimate the controlled (natural) direct and mediation effects, and compute the bootstrap Confidence Intervals as described by Guo, Z., Small, D.S., Gansky, S.A., Cheng, J. (2018) <doi:10.1111/rssc.12233>.
