All quantitative researchers, academic and non-academic, with experience/knowledge of performing causal analysis with data from observational studies and of some of the challenges (e.g. adjusting for confounding bias/selection on observables, non-random selection, endogenous regressors). It should be suitable for junior researchers or senior researchers who wish to get a hands-on introduction to this topic.
Some prior knowledge of programming would be desirable but not essential. Experience with some statistical package should be sufficient to understand and run the exercises.
None required, but if you want to delve into the practical side of things, please do an online introductory python module to get some familiarity with the language.
