Econometric modelling for causal inference and program evaluation have witnessed a tremendous development in the last decade, with new approaches and methods addressing an expanding set of challenging problems, both in medical and the social sciences. This course covers some recent developments in causal inference and program evaluation using Stata. It will provide participants with the essential tools, both theoretical and applied, for a proper use of recent micro-econometric methods for policy evaluation and causal modelling in situations where the standard “binary” treatment setting poses limitations. After attending the course, the participant will be able to setting up and managing a correct evaluation design using Stata, by identifying the policy framework, the appropriate econometric method to use interpreting correctly the results. The course will provide various instructional examples on real datasets.
