On October 27 Statistical Horizons will host a two-day seminar on instrumental variables. The course will offer an in-depth survey of modern instrumental variables (IV) analysis. IV analysis is an important quasi-experimental technique with numerous applications in economics, the social and biomedical sciences, business, marketing, and education. This seminar will take students from the basic Wald estimator up to powerful recent developments, including non-parametric tests of the exclusion assumption. Students will get extensive hands-on experience by analyzing real world examples across the social sciences. We will carefully dissect key technical and substantive assumptions to empower students to recognize, understand, and empirically test these assumptions in practice.

The seminar will be taught by Dr. Felix Elwert, a professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The course is available for early registration until September 28 for $895. To register click HERE.
