Gaussian Process Regression Discontinuity

  title={Gaussian Process Regression Discontinuity},
  author={Joseph T. Ornstein and JBrandon Duck-Mayr},
In applied settings, regression discontinuity (RD) designs often suffer from noisy data and low power. This tends to produce exaggerated causal effect estimates, typified by implausibly large slope and/or concavity parameters. We propose a new method for estimating causal effects in RD designs called Gaussian Process Regression Discontinuity (GPRD). This approach overcomes the major disadvantages of global polynomial estimators and does so with lower variance than local linear estimators. When… CONTINUE READING
