Abstract

This course introduces statistical techniques to evaluate health outcomes, focusing primarily on causal inference. Using observational data to establish causality — the conclusion that one thing causes another — has important applications in science, medicine, policy, economics, and business, as it allows us to measure and predict the true effectiveness of our decisions.

Keywords: health care, causal inference
