Experiments that have great clarifying potential can also be expensive and difficult to orchestrate, particularly in situations where the random assignment of treatments means a sharp departure from what would ordinarily occur. For experiments on certain visible or conflictual topics, ethical problems might also arise. Subjects might either be denied a treatment that they would ordinarily seek or be exposed to a treatment that they would ordinarily avoid.

People who favor the front-running candidate before the debate might be more likely to watch the debate than those who expect their candidate to lose). Experimental research differs from observational research in that the entities under study are randomly assigned to different treatments. Here, treatments refer to potentially causal interventions. For example, an experimenter might assign some people to watch a debate (one treatment) and assign others to watch a completely different program (a second treatment).

The same may be said for double-blind procedures: when those who implement experiments are unaware of subjects’ experimental assignments, they cannot intentionally or inadvertently alter their measurement of the dependent variable. A second assumption is known as the stable unit treatment value assumption (SUTVA). In the notation used previously, expectations such as E(Yi1 |Ti = ti ) are all written as if the expected value of the treatment outcome variable Yi1 for unit i only depends on whether the unit gets the treatment (whether ti equals one or zero).
