KHB: Stata module to decompose total effects into direct and indirect via KHB-method
Abstractdecomposes the total effect of a variable into direct and indirect effects using the KHB-method developed by Karlson, Holm, and Breen (2011). The method is developed for binary and logit probit models, but this command also includes other nonlinear probability models (ordered and multinomial) and linear regression. Contrary to other decomposition methods, the KHB-method gives unbiased decompositions, decomposes effects of both discrete and continuous variables, and provides analytically derived statistical tests for many models of the GLM family.
