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.

In these lecture notes, a selection of frequently required statistical tools will be introduced and illustrated. They allow to post-process data that stem from, e.g., large-scale numerical simulations (aka sequence of random experiments).

Nonparametric regression analysis has become central to economic theory. Hardle, by writing the first comprehensive and accessible book on the subject, contributed enormously to making nonparametric regression equally central to econometric practice.

The book covers broad areas such as topologic and combinatorial aspects of random matrix theory; scaling limits, universalities and phase transitions in matrix models; universalities for random polynomials; and applications to integrable systems.
