## Technical appendix

In the main text, I discussed making causal claims from non-experimental data using natural experiments and matching. In this appendix, I will introduce the potential outcomes model, and define more precisely the conditions that are required for causal inference from observational data. This chapter will draw on Morgan and Winship (2014) and Imbens and Rubin (2015).
