The roles of causal identification and causal explanation in causal inference, which we build upon here, have been most fully elaborated by Shadish, Cook, and Campbell (2002), heirs to a prominent counterfactual tradition in psychology (Cook & Campbell 1979) . ) can provide a more realistic assessment of what our studies can accomplish and, perhaps, a platform for a more successful translation of basic research findings into sound public-health interventions. To make these arguments, we will (1) review the history and principles of the potential outcomes model, (2) describe the limitations of this model as the basis for interventions in the real world, and (3) propose an alternative based on an integration of the potential outcomes model with other counterfactual traditions.

Every individual is conceptualized as having a potential outcome under each exposure that is independent of the actual exposure. Potential outcomes are determined by the myriad of largely unknown genetic, in utero, childhood, adult, social, psychological, and biological causes to which the individuals have been exposed, other than the exposure under study. The effect of the exposure for each individual is the difference between the potential outcome under the two exposure conditions, exposed and not.
