Next week, on Friday, 9/11 at 12:00 noon Eastern, the 2016-2016 season of the International Methods Colloquium will kick off with a talk from Gary King (Harvard University). Gary’s talk is entitled “Why Propensity Scores Should Not Be Used for Matching.” His paper (co-authored with Richard Nielsen) is here:

To tune in to Gary’s talk and participate in the Q&A session after the talk, visit http://www.methods-colloquium.com/ and click “Watch Now!” on the day of the talk. The IMC uses GoToWebinar, which is free to use for listeners and works on PCs, Macs, and iOS and Android tablets and phones. You can be a part of the talk from anywhere around the world with access to the Internet. The talk and Q&A will last for a total of one hour.
