Principal Stratification -- a Goal or a Tool?

Judea Pearl
Published Online: 2011-03-30 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1557-4679.1322

Here, we analyze the conceptual basis for this framework and invite response to clarify the value of principal stratification in estimating causal effects of interest.

Keywords: causal inference; principal stratification; surrogate endpoints; direct effect; mediation
