Abstract We study the identification of channels of policy reforms with multiple treatments and different types of selection for each treatment. We disentangle reform effects into policy effects, selection effects, and time effects under the assumption of conditional independence, common trends, and an additional exclusion restriction on the non-treated. Furthermore, we show the identification of direct- and indirect policy effects after imposing additional sequential conditional independence… Expand
Direct and Indirect Effects based on Changes-in-Changes (second version)
We propose a novel approach for causal mediation analysis based on changesin-changes assumptions restricting unobserved heterogeneity over time. This allows disentangling the causal effect of aExpand
