Elaboration Model: Also known as interpretation method, Columbia School or Lazarfeld method. Does the relationship between two variables depend on a third variable (a control variable)? Purpose: Does the relationship actually exist? We can test for non-spuriousness. What are the mechanisms through which the causal relationship occurs? Identify intervening variables between IV and DV Conditions under which original bivariate relationship might hold. Incorporating a control variable: Divide observations into subgroups on the basis of the control or test variable. Reexamine the relationship between the original two variables separately for the control variable subgroups. The separate tables for each control variable subgroup are called partial tables and display the partial relationship between the independent and dependent variables within each specific category of the control variable. Compare the partial relationship with the original relationship

Replication: The observed relationship between the independent and dependent variables remains the same or essentially the same. Cross-tabulation between "mother's addiction" (independent variable) and "respondent's addiction" (dependent variable): Mother's Addiction Yes No Total Respondent's Yes 80% (80) 40% (40) (120) Addiction No 20% (20) 60% (60) (80) (100) (100) (200) Elaborate on the above relationship by adding "type of relationship with mother" as the control
