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