Python implementation of causal trees with validation

Project description


Christopher Tran, Elena Zheleva, "Learning Triggers for Heterogeneous Treatment Effects", AAAI 2019.

Our method is based on and adapted from:


  • Python 3
  • sklearn
  • scipy
  • graphviz (if you want to plot the tree)


through pip

pip install causal_tree_learn

or clone the repository

python build_ext --inplace

Demo Code

Two demo codes are available to run.


Runs the tree on a binary example (asthma.txt)


Runs a tree on a trigger problem where the treatment is continuous (note for now the example is made up and treatment does not affect outcome, this is only to show example code)
