# COMMA

**COMMA:** **CO**rrecting
**M**isclassified **M**ediation
**A**nalysis

## Overview

**COMMA** provides a set of functions for the analysis
of mediation models with binary mediator misclassification.

The two main parts are:

- Classification probability calculations
- Parameter estimation

## Classification
probability calculations

The package allows users to compute the probability of the latent
true mediators and the conditional probability of observing a mediator
value given the latent true mediator, based on parameters estimated from
the `COMMA_EM`

, `COMMA_PVW`

, and
`COMMA_OLS`

functions.

## Parameter estimation

Jointly estimate parameters from the true mediator, observed
mediator, and outcome mechanisms, respectively, in a mediation analysis
with a binary misclassified mediator variable. Three methods are
provided for parameter estimation: an ordinary least squares correction
procedure, a predictive value weighting approach, and an
expectation-maximization algorithm.
