Causality Prize

Judea Pearl asked me to post the following announcement:

Dear friends in causality research,

I think you will be pleased to know that the American Statistical Association has announced a new Prize, “Causality in Statistics Education”, aimed to encourage the teaching of basic causal inference in introductory statistics courses.

The motivations for the prize are discussed in an interview I gave to Ron Wasserstein. Nomination procedures and selection criteria can be found here.

I hope readers of this list will participate, either by innovating new tools for teaching causation or by nominating candidates who deserve the prize.

And speaking about education, Bryant and I have revised our survey of econometrics textbooks, see here, and would love to hear your suggestions on how to restore causal inference to econometrics education.
