Coding example

We have also included an example exercise that demonstrates the minimum technical requirements to being an RA in the guide. The exercise is meant to be purely informative as a general example, is not exhaustive, and is not meant to represent the day-to-day work of any particular RA.

In doing the example, you should focus on devising an empirical strategy to approach a causal question with the data provided. The data provided will be mostly clean but may not be in a helpful format. You will need to come up with the empirical strategy, reformat the data to map it to the empirical strategy, and provide evidence toward answering the causal question.
