Synthetic Control Methods

Princeton University is actively monitoring the situation around coronavirus (Covid-19) and the evolving guidance from government and health authorities. Any updates to this event, including rescheduling to a later date, will be posted to this website. For the latest University guidance for University members and visitors is available on the University’s Emergency Management website

Due to ongoing concerns and public safety and health restrictions associated with COVID-19, this workshop has been postponed.  Additional details will be provided at a later date.

Synthetic controls are widely applied to estimate the effects of policy interventions and other treatments of interests. The DataX Workshop on synthetic control methods seeks to provide an introduction to synthetic control methods for non-experts as well as an opportunity for researchers working on synthetic control methods to communicate new results, reach audiences outside their primary disciplinary fields, and seek potential collaborations. The two-day workshop will kick off with a 3-hour tutorial on synthetic control methods during the afternoon of Friday, September 11. Saturday, September 12 will be devoted to presentations and discussion of recent research contributions.
