Causal inference in register studies

In this course we introduce causal inference with main focus on two approaches; i) the potential outcome framework/ Rubin Causal Model and ii) Causal inference with graphical models.
Identification of causal effects in the two approaches is studied. Non and semi-parametric estimators of causal effects commonly associated with the potential outcome framework will be presented. A general  introduction to graphical models is also given.
