The target audience is empirical researchers who are reasonably familiar with the basics of causal inference (from our main workshop or otherwise), and want to extend their knowledge. We will assume familiarity with the potential outcomes notation, randomization inference, difference-in-differences, regression discontinuity, panel data, and instrumental variable designs, but will not assume expertise in any of these areas.Northwestern University hosts the Research Design for Causal Inference Workshop, also sponsored by Duke University, the Society for Empirical Legal Studies, and The Searle Center on Law, Regulation, and Economic Growth at Northwestern Law. For more information and registration please go to http://polisci.duke.edu/causalinference/advanced-workshop. Please note that seating is limited and registration is required.
