    Duration

About

The course presents the latest methodologic developments for the design and analysis of longitudinal studies.

Specifically, the Causal Inference course at Erasmus University Rotterdam will introduce the three g-methods (inverse probability weighting of marginal structural models; parametric g-formula; and g-estimation of structural nested models) in the setting of time-fixed treatments, and demonstrate inverse probability weighting for addressing causal questions regarding static and dynamic treatment strategies.

Objectives

The student is able to:

  • Recognize and formulate well defined questions concerning causal effects;
  • Use causal diagrams to represent a priori subject-matter knowledge and assumptions;
  • Identify the settings in which conventional methods for data analysis are inadequate;
  • Use provided software to estimate causal effects using g-methods.
