Introduction to Causal Data Analysis and Modeling with Coincidence Analysis

Learning causal data analysis with Coincidence Analysis from the ground up – organized by the Faculty of Finance and Accounting and University of Bergen.

This workshop offers an intensive 4-day introduction to causal modeling with Coincidence Analysis (CNA), a relatively new configurational comparative method of data analysis geared towards causal complexity, which has seen a considerable uptick in applications in recent years. No prior knowledge of CNA is required.
