Rubin’s Causal Model and the Mexican Drug War by Tyler Scott '21, Statistics Colloquium

Rubin’s Causal Model and the Mexican Drug War by Tyler Scott ’21, Statistics Colloquium, 1:30 – 2:15 pm, join with Google Meet at meet.google.com/okv-qdfg-fqd

Abstract:  Having the ability to make causal interpretations can create immense value when it comes to better understanding the effect of different policy interventions or treatments, especially when we’re unable to have a controlled and randomized study design. In this talk, we will discuss Rubin’s Causal Model and the general causal inference framework, with further dialogue about propensity score matching as a technique that can support our ability to make causal interpretations through natural experiments. Coinciding with this will be a discussion on an application of this topic that considers the implications of military interventions on homicide rates during the Mexican Drug War.
