Inference on Individual Treatment Effects in Nonseparable Triangular Models

  title={Inference on Individual Treatment Effects in Nonseparable Triangular Models},
  author={Jun Ma and Vadim Marmer and Zhengfei Yu},
In nonseparable triangular models with a binary endogenous treatment and a binary instrumental variable, Vuong and Xu (2017) show that the individual treatment effects (ITEs) are identifiable. Feng, Vuong, and Xu (2019) show that a kernel density estimator that uses nonparametrically estimated ITEs as observations is uniformly consistent for the density of the ITE. In this paper, we establish the asymptotic normality of the density estimator of Feng, Vuong, and Xu (2019) and show that despite…

Estimation of Heterogeneous Individual Treatment Effects With Endogenous Treatments
ABSTRACT This article estimates individual treatment effects (ITE) and its probability distribution in a triangular model with binary-valued endogenous treatments. Our estimation procedure takes two
Jackknife multiplier bootstrap: finite sample approximations to the U-process supremum with applications
A novel jackknife multiplier bootstrap (JMB) tailored to the U-process is proposed, and coupling and Kolmogorov distance bounds are derived and new local maximal inequalities for $U$-processes are established, which may be useful in other problems.

In this paper, we propose to construct confidence bands by bootstrapping the debiased kernel density estimator (for density estimation) and the debiased local polynomial regression estimator (for
Counterfactual mapping and individual treatment effects in nonseparable models with binary endogeneity
This paper establishes nonparametric identification of individual treatment effects in a nonseparable model with a binary endogenous regressor. The outcome variable may be continuous, discrete, or a
Regression Discontinuity with Categorical Outcomes
We consider the regression discontinuity (RD) design with categorical outcomes, and exploit the possibility of adapting well-developed microeconometric models to the RD setting. The channels through
A Test for Instrument Validity
The strongest testable implication for instrument validity is given by the condition for non- negativity of point-identi…able complier's outcome densities using a variance-weighted Kolmogorov-Smirnov test statistic.
Identification of Nonseparable Models Using Instruments With Small Support
I consider nonparametric identification of nonseparable instrumental variables models with continuous endogenous variables. If both the outcome and first stage equations are strictly increasing in a
