30 Sep 2020 TI Methods Speaker Series: A Practical Introduction to Propensity Score Analysis using R
Propensity score-based methods are widely used in analyzing observational datasets to reduce the impact of confounding due to observed covariates. This presentation provides a basic overview of popular Propensity Score approaches, analysis steps explained in R, best practices, and reporting guidelines. The prerequisites are knowledge of multiple regression analysis, and working knowledge of R. Background in propensity score analysis or causal inference is not required.
This presentation was offered in collaboration with the Student and Recent Graduate Committee (SARGC) of the Statistical Society of Canada.
