– 50th GESIS Spring Seminar 2021 "Causal Inference" (online seminar), 1-19 March 2021, Germany

Across the social sciences, questions of causal inference are attracting increased attention, with researchers wanting to not only test associative hypotheses but uncover causal relationships between two or more variables. With social-science contexts often not lending themselves to classical experimental designs, recent years saw the development of advanced methodological approaches to investigate such causal relationships from observational data, and the advent of big data has brought forward further methodological advances in relation to machine learning. The Spring Seminar will address these developments and offer three courses on causal inference. Lectures in each course are complemented by hands-on exercises giving participants the opportunity to apply these methods to data.
Courses can be booked either separately or as a block.
More information and registration can be found here.

There is no registration deadline, but places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
