Directed acyclic graphs for the study of effects of occupation on risk of COVID-19-related outcomes
This preprint paper, produced by researchers from Theme 3 of the PROTECT study, collates directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) that have been used in the study of the effects of occupation on COVID-19-related health outcomes such as infection, severity, and mortality.
DAGs are tools for representing knowledge and assumptions about a data-generating process, and are used to identify which variables should be adjusted for in a statistical analysis. By collating those that have been produced in relation to occupation and COVID-19 outcomes, the authors aim to identify points of consensus and contention.
