Simple Method for Purging Mediation Effects among Independent Variables

Simple method of purging independent variables of mediating effects. First, regress the direct variable on the indirect variable. Then, used the stored residuals as the new purged (direct) variable in the updated specification. This purging process allows for use of a new direct variable uncorrelated with the indirect variable.
