Epi Tools Workshop: Joshua Angrist "Mastering Metrics: The Path from Cause to Effect"
Over the last 20 years, Dr. Angrist led the renaissance of instrumental variables analyses to estimate causal effects in the context of observational data settings. He authored the influential textbooks “Mostly Harmless Econometrics” and “Mastering ‘Metrics: The Path from Cause to Effect” (with Jorn-Steffen Pischke). Dr. Angrist’s empirical work has been especially important in efforts to understand the consequences of education and educational policies. This EpiTools seminar will review core econometric methods, motivating with applied examples and reviewing underlying concepts.
