Come and learn about in-depth surveys of modern instrumental variables (IV) analysis at the 2-day course hosted by Statistical Horizons starting January 8 at 9 a.m.
IV analysis is an important quasi-experimental technique with numerous applications in economics, the social and biomedical sciences, business, marketing, and education. The course plans to carefully dissect key technical and substantive assumptions to empower students to recognize these assumptions in practice by allowing students extensive hands-on experience.
Topics include single instruments, multiple instruments, weak instruments, first-stage diagnostics, over-identification tests, exclusion tests, two-stage least squares, natural experiments, encouragement trials, Mendelian randomization, continuous and categorical outcomes, compliance classes, local average treatment effects, and Balke-Pearl bounds.
Participants should have a good working knowledge of multiple regression and basic knowledge of Stata and is appropriate for researchers (in industry or at universities, faculty, doctoral students, and advanced masters students) with an applied background in multiple regression analysis.
