Re: “Study Finds Significant Reduction in Gun Homicides in Oakland Via Ceasefire Strategy

"Furthermore, the researchers measured a 20 percent reduction in shootings in Oakland neighborhoods where the police focused the Ceasefire strategy compared to other parts of the city that did not receive the same treatment."

Ernest & Kevin: This is pretty good identification of a causal effect - it's like saying skin cancer decreased more in the places where sunscreen was available compared to where it wasn't, since the advent of skin cancer. It's not a perfect experiment, but much closer to that than simply comparing crime before & after the policy.
