Hierarchical moderated regression (HMR) analysis
may lead to interpretational problems in tests of moderator
(interaction) hypotheses. An alternative, residual-
centering approach is described and compared to
traditional HMR analysis. Procedures for evaluating interaction
hypotheses and general effect analysis procedures
are described for path (causal) models containing
interactions. Index terms: Confirmatory
analysis, Effect analysis in path models, Goodness-of-fit
tests, Hierarchical moderated regression, Mediators,
Moderated regression, Multicollinearity, Path
models, Residual centering.
