  • Unmeasured confounding is a key challenge for causal inference. Negative control variables are widely available in observational studies. A negative control outcome is associated with the confounder but not causally affected by the exposure in view, and a negative control exposure is correlated with the primary exposure or the confounder but does not causally affect the outcome of interest. In this paper, we establish a framework to use them for unmeasured confounding adjustment. We introduce a… CONTINUE READING
