Abstract [en]

Relationship between two popular modeling frameworks of causalinference from observational data, namely, causal graphical model andpotential outcome causal model is discussed. How some popular causaleffect estimators found in applications of the potential outcome causalmodel, such as inverse probability of treatment weighted estimator anddoubly robust estimator can be obtained by using the causal graphicalmodel is shown. We confine to the simple case of binary outcome andtreatment variables with discrete confounders and it is shown how togeneralize results to cases of continuous variables.
