  David A. Freedman presents here a definitive synthesis of his approach to causal inference in the social sciences. He explores the foundations and limitations of statistical modeling, illustrating basic arguments with examples from political science, public policy, law, and epidemiology/5. 'This book will revolutionize how applied statistics is taught in statistics and the social and biomedical sciences. The authors present a unified vision of causal inference that covers both experimental and observational by:

Panel data, which consist of information gathered from the same individuals or units at several different points in time, are commonly used in the social sciences to test theories of individual and social change. This book provides an overview of models that are appropriate for the analysis of panel data, focusing specifically on the area where. Jennifer Hill, Elizabeth A. Stuart, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences (Second Edition), Introduction: Causal Inference as a Comparison of Potential Outcomes. Causal inference refers to an intellectual discipline that considers the assumptions, study designs, and estimation strategies that allow researchers to draw causal conclusions .

He is a Co-Founder and Editor of the Journal of Causal Inference and the author of three landmark books in inference-related areas. His latest book, Causality: Models, Reasoning and Inference (Cambridge, , ), has introduced many of the methods used in modern causal analysis. It won the Lakatosh Award from the London School of Economics.   From a statistical perspective, causal inference corresponds to predictions about potential outcomes, and structural equation models, as traditionally written, just model the data, they don’t model potential outcomes. Some of these concerns are discussed in the causal inference chapters of my book with Jennifer Hill.

“Causal models are being more widely used in the social sciences, but most of them originate in econometrics, and explanations of how to use them tend to assume a higher degree of mathematical sophistication than sociologists and political sciences seek.1/5(1).

Causal models are formal theories stating the relationships between precisely defined variables, and have become an indispensable tool of the social scientist. This collection of articles is a course book on the causal modeling approach to theory construction and data analysis.1/5(1).

Causality and Causal Modelling in the Social Sciences: Measuring Variations is therefore a compulsory reading both for philosophers of science and for social scientists.

For philosophers on the one hand, reading this book is a good way of experiencing how social science is actually done, far from the arm-chair view of scientific practice.
