Page 110:

Line 5 of Theorem 1 should read:

2(ii). P(y|do(x)) is identified assuming a model where Z is randomized.

Third sentence after Remark should read:

Condition 2(ii) requires nonparametric identification of the average treatment effects (ATE) [4–6] in a modified model, with Z fixed. This identification can be readily decided by graphical means [7].

Line 5 of Theorem 2 should read:

2(ii). P(y|do(z)) is identified assuming a model where X is randomized.
