Seminar Presentation: The Ethics of Adjustment

12:30 - 1:30 PM
Event flyer

Location: Friedgen Seminar Room 2236

The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics will host a seminar presented by Jay Kaufman.

It is well-known that the conceptual basis for confounding adjustment in observational epidemiology is to mimic a randomized trial, but this does not provide a framework for descriptive studies. A major surveillance function of public health is the monitoring of racial and ethnic disparities, but the choice of covariate adjustments for such comparisons is not settled in the literature. This talk will propose a framework for such decisions.
