Causal Inference under Outcome-Based Sampling with Monotonicity Assumptions

  title={Causal Inference under Outcome-Based Sampling with Monotonicity Assumptions},
  author={Sung Jae Jun and Sokbae (Simon) Lee},
We study causal inference under case-control and case-population sampling. For this purpose, we focus on the binary-outcome and binary-treatment case, where the parameters of interest are causal relative and attributable risk defined via the potential outcome framework. It is shown that strong ignorability is not always as powerful as it is under random sampling and that certain monotonicity assumptions yield comparable results in terms of sharp identified intervals. Specifically, the usual…

Monotone Instrumental Variables with an Application to the Returns to Schooling
Econometric analyses of treatment response commonly use instrumental variable (IV) assumptions to identify treatment effects. Yet the credibility of IV assumptions is often a matter of considerable
Causal Inference for Case-Control Studies
Author(s): Rose, Sherri | Advisor(s): van der Laan, Mark J. | Abstract: Case-control study designs are frequently used in public health and medical research to assess potential risk factors for
Case-control studies with contaminated controls☆
Abstract This paper considers inference about a parametric binary choice model when the data consist of two distinct samples. The first is a random sample from the people who made choice 1, say, with
The identification power of smoothness assumptions in models with counterfactual outcomes
In this paper, we investigate what can be learned about average counterfactual outcomes when it is assumed that treatment response functions are smooth. The smoothness conditions in this paper amount
Sharp bounds on causal effects in case-control and cohort studies
Evaluating the causal effect of an exposure on a response from case-control and cohort studies is a major concern in epidemiological and medical research. Since causal effects are in general
Parametric models for response‐biased sampling
Summary. Suppose that subjects in a population follow the model f(y*lx*; 6) where y* denotes a response, x* denotes a vector of covariates and 6 is the parameter to be estimated. We consider
Concave-Monotone Treatment Response and Monotone Treatment Selection: With an Application to the Returns to Schooling
This paper identifies sharp bounds on the mean treatment response and average treatment effect under the assumptions of both concave monotone treatment response (concave-MTR) and monotone treatment
Monotone Confounding, Monotone Treatment Selection and Monotone Treatment Response
It is shown that MC and MTS coincide for a binary treatment, but MC does not imply MTS for a treatment variable with more than two levels, and bounds under various combinations of these assumptions are provided.
Partial Identification in Econometrics
A clear separation is obtained between problems of statistical inference arising from the variability of finite samples, and problems of identification in which the authors explore the limits to which inference even from an infinite number of observations is suspect.
On a closed-form doubly robust estimator of the adjusted odds ratio for a binary exposure.
This paper aims to introduce a simple closed-form doubly robust estimator of the adjusted odds ratio for a binary exposure by presenting a SAS macro and a simulated data example to facilitate use of the approach in routine epidemiologic practice.
