Testing Treatment Effect Heterogeneity in Regression Discontinuity Design (with Shu Shen, accepted in JOURNAL OF ECONOMETRICS)

  • 作者 許育進
  • 摘要 Treatment effect heterogeneity is frequently studied in regression discontinuity (RD) applications. This paper proposes, under the RD setup, formal tests for treatment effect heterogeneity among individuals with different observed pre-treatment characteristics. The proposed tests study whether a policy treatment 1) is beneficial for at least some subpopulations defined by pre-treatment covariate values, 2) has any impact on at least some subpopulations, and 3) has a heterogeneous impact across subpopulations. The empirical section applies the tests to study the impact of attending a better high school and discovers interesting patterns of treatment effect heterogeneity neglected by previous studies.
