  • Causal inference in observational studies is notoriously difficult, due to the fact that the experimenter is not in charge of the treatment assignment mechanism. Many potential con- founding factors (PCFs) exist in such a scenario, and if one seeks to estimate the causal effect of the treatment on a response, one needs to control for such factors. Identifying all relevant PCFs may be difficult (or impossible) given a single observational study. Instead, we argue that if one can observe a… CONTINUE READING
