Title: Multivariate Matching Methods for Causal Inference
Author(s): Jose Zubizarreta*
Companies: Harvard University
Keywords: Causal inference; Observational studies; Matching methods

In this roundtable, we will discuss the role of matching methods for causal inference in observational studies. We will establish a sharp distinction with related weighting and regression modeling approaches. We will deliberate on the use of matching methods with multi-valued and time-varying treatments. We will explain how these methods can be used to build matched samples that are balanced relative to target populations and specific individuals. As time permits, we will talk about sensitivity analyses to hidden biases.
