Matching, Regression Discontinuity, Difference in Differences, and Beyond
Myoung-jae Lee reviews the three most popular methods (and their extensions) in applied economics and other social sciences: matching, regression discontinuity, and difference in differences. This book introduces the underlying econometric and statistical ideas, shows what is identified and how the identified parameters are estimated, and illustrates how they are applied with real empirical examples. Lee emphasizes how to implement the three methods with data: data and programs are provided in a useful online appendix. All readers-theoretical econometricians/statisticians, applied economists/social-scientists and researchers/students-will find something useful in the book from different perspectives.
