    This is an interesting methodology, but the use of “randomized control trial” is not appropriate. In a “real” randomized control trial, one uses statistical analysis with the understanding that all participants are randomized to a treatment that controls for confounding.

    This, at least from what I can see, isn’t what has been done here. That is, the counterfactual is obviously not known but is being simulated through statistical assumptions. I may be wrong, but there could still be confounding in your study, regardless of your “randomization”.
