Statistics, Register Data Analysis and Causal Inference, Second Cycle, 7,5 Credits

Randomization of treatment units on treatments in experiments yields high validity of observed treatment effects. Nowadays many studies make use of register data in analysis of treatment effects. Here the researcher has no control over allocation of units on treatments and has to adjust the analysis for potential selection effects; otherwise results may be invalid. This course discusses different methods and approaches for analysis of register data for the assessment of treatment effects.

Assessments: The course can be assessed through written examination, take-home examination, compulsory course components, paper, essay and/or oral examination.
