Bill Shipley - Guide to Path Analysis, Structural Equations and Causal Inference

Bill Shipley explores the logical and methodological relationships between correlation and causation. He presents a series of statistical methods that cant est, and potentially discover, cause-effect relationships between variables in situations where it is not possible to conduct randomized, or experimentally controlled, studies. Many of these methods are quite new and most are generally unknown to biologists. Besides describing how to conduct these statistical tests, he also puts the methods into historical context and explains when they can and cannot justifiably be used to test causal claims.
