Podcast: Using Propensity Scores in Causal Inference

April 13, 2012:dcoff
As a preview for the upcoming Summer Institute, we recorded a podcast with Donna Coffman, Methodology Center Principal Investigator, and Max Crowley, doctoral candidate, on how to use propensity scores in causal inference when a study is not randomized.

Donna will present “Propensity Score Methods for Causal Inference” at this year’s Summer Institute on Innovative Methods. The Institute will describe statistical, methodological, and conceptual aspects of propensity score methods for causal inference.  It will be held in State College,  PA, on June 21-22, 2012 at the Penn Stater Conference Center and Hotel. Scholarships are available to qualified applicants.
