I really hope u can help me because i've tried to find a solution to my problem for ages now..

i'm performing a mediation analysis with two regressions to get the coefficients a b and c. i know the interpretation of indirect effect (a*b) in mediation analysis when there is no transformed variable:

the amount by which Y is expected to change indirectly through M per a unit change in X

but i transformed some of my variables. now i m not sure what it means. generally in a regression analysis you can interpret the coefficients as elasticity when the iv and the dv is log transformed...

can anybody help me in figuring out how to interpret the results / coefficients in a mediation analysis logged iv, mediatorvariable and dv??

i couldnt even find another study that did this and interpreted the values...

i would be very grateful for any hints...

im guessing one can interpret the results as elasticities as well. but im not quite sure...
