Step 2: Explore Causal ModelsThe purpose of this step is to read two short articles that explain causal models and the causal modeling process. This is important for you to read so that you can complete the next step of drawing or creating your own causal models related to your specific public problem.Read Youngblut, J.

While we are using the language of “causes” and “effects”, there are other terms that are more appropriately use in analyzing causal relations. Causes can also be known as “independent variables” or “treatments”. Effects can also be known as “dependent variables” or “outcomes”.Step 5: Create your “Data Analyst’s Highlight” Presentation Slide for your PresentationThe purpose of this step is to reflect on these steps by explaining what you liked or disliked about the process, place one or more of your drawn/created causal models in a presentation slide, and find a data table, chart, or graph related public problem and placing it a presentation slide.A Google Slides Presentation template (Links to an external site.) is available to assist you in preparing this slide and your presentation.
