focuses on the identification and estimation of causal effects. The course is
divided into three blocks.
The first block
introduces the concepts of potential outcomes, estimands and discusses
inference of casual effect in a randomized controlled trial (RCT).
The second block
discusses causal inference with observational data, that is data that are
collected from registers or surveys. The focus is on, what is known as,
quasi-experimental designs. The reason for the definition is that the modelling
builds on the concepts from the RCT. We first discuss the Rubin Casual Model.
The fundamental assumption for this model is the unconfoundedness assumption,
which means that we can create an RCT using pre-treatment observed covariates.
We then discusses designs and/or methods that do not rely on the
unconfoundedness assumptions. Methods or design often used in micro-econometric
third block discuss models that add more structure to the estimation but
consider also partial identification and bounds.
