Causal Inference with R - Instrumental Variables & RDD


A look at using Instrumental Variables and Regression Discontinuity to estimate causal effects

Introduction to Instrumental Variables

This chapter will introduce you to Instrumental Variables (IV) analysis, a tricky but powerful method to find causality through indirect inference

Instrumental Variables in Practice

This chapter covers more details about Instrumental Variables Analysis, and allows you to practice instrumental variables for yourself

Regression Discontinuity Design

This chapter introduces you to Regression Discontinuity Design (RDD), which is often considered a more flexible relative of Instrumental Variables

The Local Average Treatment Effect of IV

This chapter explains the treatment effect we are estimating with the instrumental variables method - LATE, or the Local Average Treatment Effect
