Three-Toed Sloth wrote a new blog post titled Discovering Causal Structure from Observations (Advanced Data Analysis from an Elementary Point of View)

How do we get our causal graph? Comparing rival DAGs by testing selected conditional independence relations (or dependencies). Equivalence classes of graphs. Causal arrows never go away no matter what you condition on ("no causation without association"). The crucial difference between common causes and common effects: conditioning on common causes makes their effects independent, conditioning on common effects makes their causes dependent. Identifying colliders, and using them to orient...
