Abstract

Our article on the causal interpretation of race in regression analyses 1 was intended to clarify (1) how such analyses could be interpreted causally without conceptualizing hypothetical interventions to somehow alter race itself, and (2) how the causal interpretation of the race coefficient differed depending on whether socioeconomic status (SES) variables were controlled for early, or later, in life. We thank Glymour and Glymour 2 and Kaufman 3 for their thoughtful commentaries.
