The tmlenet R package performs estimation of average causal effects for single time point interventions in network-dependent (non-IID) data in the presence of interference and/or spillover. Currently implemented estimation algorithms are the targeted maximum likelihood estimation (TMLE), Horvitz-Thompson or the inverse-probability-of-treatment (IPTW) estimator and the parametric G-computation estimator. The user-specified interventions can be either static, dynamic or stochastic. Asymptotically correct influence-curve-based confidence intervals are also constructed for the TMLE and IPTW. See the paper below for more information on the estimation methodology employed by the tmlenet R package: M. J. van der Laan, “Causal inference for a population of causally connected units,” J. Causal Inference J. Causal Infer., vol. 2, no. 1, pp. 13–74, 2014.
