Causal Inference


19 Jul 2021 — 28 Jul 2021

Scientific inquiry is dependent on progress made in theory, measurement, observation and causal inference. This class will review the fundamental and contemporary theories of causal inference as found in Neyman, Rubin and Pearl. Such theories are crucial both in scientific inquiry and policy design. These theories define causality in terms of comparing historical events to their counterfactuals. We will review several research designs that can under varied assumptions and with appropriate statistical models estimate these causal effects credibly. The class will have prescribed assignments in R as the secondary objective of the course is to help students gain competency in the implementation of these designs as well as understanding them more generally.

This class will consist of all-day lectures and exercises, from 9am to 5pm Texas time each class day. Class days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in week 1, and Monday and Wednesday in week 2.


Prerequisites

Textbook: Causal Inference: The Mixtape, written by the professor.
