Product description

Review

"This book is the first representative of a growing surge of interest among social scientists and economists to reclaim their professions from the tyrany of regression analysis and address cause-effect relationships squarely and formally. The book is unique in recognizing the equivalence between the counterfactual and graphical approaches to causal analysis and shows readers how to best utilize the distinct features of each. An indispensible reading for every forward-looking student of quantitative social science." -Judea Pearl University of California, Los Angeles

"...Morgan and Winship have written an important, wide-ranging, careful, and original introduction to the modern literature on causal inference in nonexperimental social research."
Canadian Journal of Sociology

Book Description

In this book, the essential features of the counterfactual model of causality for observational data analysis are presented with examples from sociology, political science, and economics. The importance of causal effect heterogeneity is stressed throughout the book and the need for deep causal explanation via mechanisms is discussed.
