CausalNLP

CausalNLP: A Practical Toolkit for Causal Inference with Text. The vast majority of existing methods and systems for causal inference assume that all variables under consideration are categorical or numerical (e.g., gender, price, blood pressure, enrollment). In this paper, we present CausalNLP, a toolkit for inferring causality from observational data that includes text in addition to traditional numerical and categorical variables. CausalNLP employs the use of meta-learners for treatment effect estimation and supports using raw text and its linguistic properties as both a treatment and a ”controlled-for” variable (e.g., confounder). The library is open-source and available at: https://github.com/amaiya/causalnlp
