CausalFX: Methods for Estimating Causal Effects from Observational Data

Estimate causal effects of one variable on another, currently for binary data only. Methods include instrumental variable bounds, adjustment by a given covariate set, adjustment by an induced covariate set using a variation of the PC algorithm, and an effect bounding method (the Witness Protection Program) based on covariate adjustment with observable independence constraints.
