Meta-Transportability of Causal Effects: A Formal Approach

  title={Meta-Transportability of Causal Effects: A Formal Approach},

This paper considers the problem of transferring experimental findings learned from multiple heterogeneous domains to a different environment, in which only passive observations can be collected. Pearl and Bareinboim (2011) established a complete characterization for such transfer between two domains, a source and a target, and this paper generalizes their results to multiple heterogeneous domains. It establishes a necessary and sufficient condition for deciding when effects in the target… CONTINUE READING
