讲座题目:《Causality inresearch methods》

主讲嘉宾:Willie Tan教授




讲座摘要:This lecture deals with the various ways researchers try to demonstrate causality through reason, association, and the development of causal mechanisms. It links these strategies to different research designs including case studies, surveys, comparison, experiments, and regressions. This talk is of interest to senior students and researchers who are less aware of biases arising from missing data, omitted variables, endogeneity, unobservable variables, and mismeasurement.
