Treatment effect estimation through regression discontinuity designs faces a severe challenge when the running variable is measured with errors, as the errors smooth out the discontinuity that the identification hinges on. Recent studies have shown that the variance of the measurement error term plays an important role on both bias correction and identification under such situations, but little is studied about how one can estimate the unknown variance from data. This paper proposes two…

Improving Power System State Estimation Based on Matrix-Level Cleaning

This paper proposes a data-driven approach to clean measurement error in matrix-level based on random matrix theory, and significantly reduces the negative effect of measurement error, and conducts a two-stage state estimation scheme combined with WLS.



The Effect of Measurement Error in the Sharp Regression Discontinuity Design

This paper develops a nonparametric analysis for the sharp regression discontinuity (RD) design in which the continuous forcing variable may contain measurement error. We show that if the observable

The Devil is in the Tails: Regression Discontinuity Design with Measurement Error in the Assignment Variable

Identification in a regression discontinuity (RD) design hinges on the discontinuity in the probability of treatment when a covariate (assignment variable) exceeds a known threshold. If the
