Correlation and Causality
by David A. Kenny
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons Inc 1979
Number of pages: 353
This text is a general introduction to the topic of structural analysis. It is an introduction because it presumes no previous acquaintance with causal analysis. It is general because it covers all the standard, as well as a few nonstandard, statistical procedures. Since the topic is structural analysis, and not statistics, very little discussion is given to the actual mechanics of estimation.
