Workshop 2: Causal Inference in Health Research using Non-Randomized Data

The workshop deals with how to estimate causal effects using non-experimental (observational) data. The workshop will begin by presenting Randomized Experiments as the gold-standard for drawing causal conclusions and to be used as a comparator to the non-experimental approaches presented in the course. The main focus will be on the methods of Difference-in-Difference (DD), Instrumental Variables (IV), and Regression Discontinuity (RD) designs. The workshop is recurrent from 2016. To fully participate in lab sessions, participants need to bring their own laptop with Stata installed.
