Energy Balancing of Covariate Distributions for Estimation of Causal Effects

March 22, 2023
3:00 - 4:00pm
via Zoom

Bias in the estimation of causal effects is a function of distributional imbalance of covariates between treatment groups. This talk introduces a novel weighting method explicitly designed to balance weighted covariate distributions, thus targeting the source of bias. This weighting strategy provides a model- free and tuning parameter- free approach for causal comparisons. It can be flexibly utilized in a wide variety of downstream causal analyses, such as the estimation of average treatment effects, individualized treatment rules and more.
