Abstract

This project aims to develop new biostatistical methods for addressing complex analytic questions that arise in studies of the causes of health, social, educational and other outcomes in the course of human life. These questions concern the pathways that explain how intermediate factors contribute to a statistical relationship between a probable cause of a later outcome. Mathematical and statistical innovation is needed to address them. The expected outcomes include a suite of novel methods designed to evaluate the impact of intervening to modify causal pathways, while also accommodating common complexities of data such as incompleteness. This project should provide major benefits to studies..
