StataCorp Special Talk – Causal Inference for Complex Observational Data (In-Person)

October 7, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Please join us for a special talk – Introduction to Mediation Analysis, given by Chuck Huber from StataCorp! This is a free talk to be held in Davis Library Room 219. Space is limited.

Observational data often have issues that present challenges for the data analyst.  The treatment status or exposure of interest is often not assigned randomly.  Data are sometimes missing, not at random (MNAR), which can lead to sample selection bias.  And many statistical models for these data must account for unobserved confounding.  This talk will demonstrate how to use standard maximum likelihood estimation to fit extended regression models (ERMs) that deal with all of these common issues alone or simultaneously. (60-90 mins)
