Donald Rubin
Three-day Course in Causality

About the Course
Most questions in social and biomedical sciences are causal in nature: what would happen to individuals, or to groups, if part of their environment were changed? In the course, the world-renowned expert Donald Rubin (Prof. em. Harvard) presents statistical methods for studying such questions.
