One of their examples is giving me trouble : I provide the code to replicate what I did at the end of the post, after a short description of the problem for those not familiar with the methodology in the book. Not surprisingly, the book advocates the use of the Rubin Causal Model RCM that uses the potential outcomes framework. We of course only observe one of these two potential outcomes for each individual depending on her treatment assignment. The crux of this framework is that it clearly turns the problem of causal inference into a missing data problem. In fact, most causal inference methods can be mapped into different ways to impute the missing outcomes. Chapter 8 of the book is about how to impute the missing potential outcomes by modeling the joint distribution of the missing and observed data and then impute the missing outcomes from the posterior predictive distribution of the missing outcomes.

In This Section

Guido Imbens and Don Rubin recently came out with a book on causal inference. Imbens and Rubin come from social science and econometrics. Meanwhile, Miguel Hernan and Jamie Robins are finishing up their own book on causal inference, which has more of a biostatistics focus. Comments on table of contents and the 5 sample chapters of Causal Inference in Statistics, by Rubin and Imbens. First off, Rubin and Imbens are the leaders in the field of causal inference. Rubin also has an excellent track record, both as a researcher and as a book author.
