17.874 Quantitative Research Methods: Multivariate (MIT)
This course is the second semester in the statistics sequence for political science and public policy offered in the Political Science Department at MIT.

The model of an effect is a conditional mean (though we might imagine other effect). The notion of causality is the effect of one variable on another holding all else constant.
