Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs) can be useful to aid causal interpretation of observational data, but sensibly applying DAGs in practice can be very challenging. The talk will discuss (1) how we can test whether a DAG is mis-specified or inconsistent with a dataset; (2) how we can deal with the issue of statistical equivalence between DAGs; and (3) how we can conduct DAG-based analyses when the presence of latent confounders cannot be ruled out.

Hands-on examples will be given that use the website ‘dagitty.net’ and the accompanying R package.
