2015 Some models and methods for the analysis of observational data

Statist. Surv. 9: 106-208 (2015). DOI: 10.1214/15-SS110


This article provides a concise and essentially self-contained exposition of some of the most important models and non-parametric methods for the analysis of observational data, and a substantial number of illustrations of their application. Although for the most part our presentation follows P. Rosenbaum’s book, “Observational Studies”, and naturally draws on related literature, it contains original elements and simplifies and generalizes some basic results. The illustrations, based on simulated data, show the methods at work in some detail, highlighting pitfalls and emphasizing certain subjective aspects of the statistical analyses.
