The Analysis of the Regression-Discontinuity Design in R
Thoemmes, Felix; Liao, Wang; Jin, Ze
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v42 n3 p341-360 Jun 2017
This article describes the analysis of regression-discontinuity designs (RDDs) using the R packages rdd, rdrobust, and rddtools. We discuss similarities and differences between these packages and provide directions on how to use them effectively. We use real data from the Carolina Abecedarian Project to show how an analysis of an RDD can be performed from start to finish.
