Real world health care data from observational studies, pragmatic trials, patient registries, and databases is common and growing in use. Real World Health Care Data Analysis: Causal Methods and Implementation in SAS® brings together best practices for causal-based comparative effectiveness analyses based on real world data in a single location. Example SAS code is provided to make the analyses relatively easy and efficient.
