Observational data often come with challenges that the data analyst needs to address. Treatment status or the exposure of interest may not be assigned randomly. Data are sometimes missing not at random (MNAR), which can lead to sample-selection bias. And statistical models for these data often need to account for unobserved confounding.
We show you how you can use standard maximum-likelihood estimation to fit extended regression models (ERMs) that deal with all of these common issues. We will work examples that demonstrate how to account for these observational data problems when they arise individually and when they occur simultaneously.
The webinar is free, but you must register to attend. Registrations are limited so register soon.
We will send you an email prior to the start with instructions on how to access the webinar.
