Micro-Econometrics for Policy, Program and Treatment Effects

Myoung-jae Lee


This book brings to the fore recent advances in econometrics for treatment effect analysis. It aims to put together various economic treatment effect models in a coherent fashion, determine those that can be parameters of interest, and show how these can be identified and estimated under weak assumptions. The emphasis throughout the book is on semi- and non-parametric estimation methods, but traditional parametric approaches are also discussed. This book is ideally suited to researchers and graduate students with a basic knowledge of econometrics.

Keywords: treatment effects, controlling covariates, matching, regression discontinuity, difference-in-differences, selection problem, study designs, instrumental variable estimation
