## Final Exam

• Will be available at 9:30pm.

• Due by end of day May 17th.

• You may use your book and course materials.

• I expect you to complete the exam on your own (i.e. do not discuss with classmates, colleagues, significant others, etc.)

• There are two parts:

1. Part one multiple choice questions and short answer questions.
2. Part two has a small data set to analyze with R, then answer some interpretation questions.

## My Work

My statistical research interest is in propensity score methods. Propensity score analysis (PSA) is a quasi-experimental design used to estimate causality from observational studies. It is generally conducted in two phases:

1. Estimate propensity scores (i.e. probability of being in the treatment) using the observed covariates.

 a. Check balance
b. Re-estimate propensity scores
2. Estimate effect sizes using typical group differences (e.g. t-tests)

See my Github repository or Intro to PSA slides.
