Full day short course
This one-day workshop on causal inference will provide an overview of randomization as a mechanism for causal analysis and use that foundation to explore some quasi-experimental causal methodology, such as regression discontinuity methods, differences-in-differences, interrupted time series, and propensity scores. A brief discussion of these techniques allows for the exploration and comparison of their similarities and differences.
