This workshop aims at discussing recent methodological issues and applications of the regression discontinuity design (RDD). The RDD is an econometric quasi-experimental design aimed at estimating the causal effects of a treatment by exploiting naturally occurring or externally imposed treatment rules.
In this workshop, we aim at mixing and cross-fertilise the perspectives of Economists, Statisticians and Epidemiologists. The workshop will consist of three sessions. Three speakers are broadly coming from an Economics background, while three are broadly coming from a statistical one.
The workshop is jointly organised by the UCL Department of Statistical Science and CEMMAP.
