ipw: An R Package for Inverse Probability Weighting

Willem M. van der Wal, Ronald B. Geskus

Main Article Content


We describe the R package ipw for estimating inverse probability weights. We show how to use the package to fit marginal structural models through inverse probability weighting, to estimate causal effects. Our package can be used with data from a point treatment situation as well as with a time-varying exposure and time-varying confounders. It can be used with binomial, categorical, ordinal and continuous exposure variables.
