The deficiencies of this approach are evident in the psychological literature on casual modeling, where a variety of extra-mathematical considerations (such as model specification) are used to suggest that model coefficients can be endowed with a causal interpretation (see, for example, Sobel 1995 on this point). By way of contrast to regularity theories, manipulability theories view causes as variables that can be manipulated, with the outcome depending on the state of the manipulated variable.

To estimate the ATT, the weights should be modified to reflect the distribution of the observations receiving treatment: n i=1 1Ai (ℓ)Di n i=1 Di . Lunceford and Davidian (2004) study subclassification on the propensity score and compare this with IPW estimators (discussed below). Using simulations, Drake (1993) compares the bias in the case where the propensity score is known to the case where it is estimated, finding no additional bias is introduced in the latter case. She also finds that when the model for the propensity score is misspecified, the bias incurred is smaller than that incurred by misspecifying the regression function.

Here there is an effect of X on Y , but the effect is indirect, through Z. There are a number of problems with this approach. First and foremost, it confounds causation with the act of inferring causation, as evidenced by the fact that the criteria above for inferring causation are typically put forth independently of any explicit notion of the causal relation. As notions of the causal relation vary, this method of inferring causation may be appropriate for some notions of causation, for example, the case where causation is regarded as a predictive relationship among variables, but not for others.
