The Excluded Variable Problem in Nonrandomized Control Group Designs.
Dwyer, James H.
Evaluation Review, v8 n4 p559-72 Aug 1984
A solution to the problem of specification error due to excluded variables in statistical models of treatment effects in nonrandomized (nonequivalent) control group designs is presented. It involves longitudinal observation with at least two pretests. A maximum likelihood estimation program such as LISREL may provide reasonable estimates of treatment effects. (Author/BS)
