English We describe R package “causalweight” for causal inference based on inverse probability weighting (IPW). The “causalweight” package offers a range of semiparametric methods for treatment or impact evaluation and mediation analysis, which incorporates intermediate outcomes for investigating causal mechanisms. Depending on the method, identification relies on selection on observables assumptions or on instrumental variables when selection is on unobservables, approaches that may also be applied to tackle non-random outcome attrition and sample selection. Inference is based on the bootstrap.
