Innovations in Randomization Inference for the Design and Analysis of Experiments and Observational Studies

  title={Innovations in Randomization Inference for the Design and Analysis of Experiments and Observational Studies},
  author={Zach Branson},
The three chapters in this dissertation develop new methods within experimental design and causal inference, as well as demonstrate how these two subfields of statistics can inform one another. These three chapters are self-contained, but they are also deeply interconnected in their ideas and approach—we elaborate on these connections in the Foreword. Chapter 1. A few years ago, the New York Department of Education (NYDE) was planning to conduct an experiment involving five new intervention… Expand
