Regression Discontinuity Designs: Theory, Application, and Practice
Where and When: Thursday, February 20, 2020, from 4pm to 5:30pm. Room C-6070-9, Lionel Groulx Building, Université de Montréal.
About: Regression Discontinuity Designs (RDDs) have exploded in recent years as a quasi-experimental research design in recent years as a means of approaching causal inference in observational settings. What do you need to know to be a good consumer and producer of RDDs? In this workshop, I will discuss the theoretical underpinnings of RDDs, discuss their strengths and weaknesses, provide tools for executing a RDD, and outline recent research that had used RDDs.
