Causal Inference for Complex Observational Data with Stata

When: November 02, 2020. 1:30 PM (EST)

Observational data often present unique challenges.  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 MNAR 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 the common issues either alone or simultaneously.
