Estimating Treatment Effects in Stata
This talk reviews treatment-effect estimation with observational data and discusses Stata examples that illustrate syntax and parameter interpretation. After reviewing the potential-outcome framework, the talk discusses estimators for the average treatment effect (ATE) and the average treatment effect on the treated (ATET) that require exogenous treatment assignment and some estimators that allow for endogenous treatment assignment. The talk also discusses checks for balance, checks for overlap, and some estimators for the ATE and the ATET for survival-time data. Finally, the talk discusses estimating and interpreting quantile treatments effects.
