paths: An Imputation Approach to Estimating Path-Specific Causal Effects

In causal mediation analysis with multiple causally ordered mediators, a set of path-specific effects are identified under standard ignorability assumptions. This package implements an imputation approach to estimating these effects along with a set of bias formulas for conducting sensitivity analysis (Zhou and Yamamoto <doi:10.31235/>). It contains two main functions: paths() for estimating path-specific effects and sens() for conducting sensitivity analysis. Estimation uncertainty is quantified using the nonparametric bootstrap.
