Causal Inference and Propensity Score Methods

Amsterdam UMC / EpidM, Department of Epidemiology & Data Science
Contenuti (corsi)
In this course students gain an overview on the statistical techniques and research designs used by epidemiologists to estimate treatment effects from patient data. We begin by reviewing the randomized controlled trial design in which patients are assigned completely at random to two or more treatment and control groups. Subsequently, we will consider estimation of treatment effects in settings when treatment assignment cannot be controlled by the experimenter. Further information see website
