In addition to identifying mediating variables, researchers often want to understand the conditions under which an experimental treatment affects an important outcome. For example, do debates only affect (or affect to a greater extent) political independents? Do debates matter only when held in close proximity to Election Day? , partisanship, timing of debate [see Baron and Kenny 1986]). Documenting moderating relationships typically entails the use of statistical interactions between the moderating variable and the treatment.

Equations (2), (4), and (5) imply that the average treatment effect may be written as ATE = E (τi ) = E (Y i1 |T i = 1) −E (Y i0 |T i = 0). (6) Because E(Yi1 |Ti = 1) and E(Yi0 |Ti = 0) may be estimated directly from the data, Equation (6) suggests a solution to the problem of causal inference. To estimate an average treatment effect, we simply calculate the difference between two sample means: the average outcome in the treatment group minus the average outcome in the control group. This estimate is unbiased in the sense that, on average across hypothetical replications of the same experiment, it reveals the true average treatment effect.
