Locally efficient estimation of marginal treatment effects when outcomes are correlated: is the prize worth the chase?


Semiparametric methods have been developed to increase efficiency of inferences in randomized trials by incorporating baseline covariates. Locally efficient estimators of marginal treatment effects, which achieve minimum variance under an assumed model, are available for settings in which outcomes are independent. The value of the pursuit of locally… (More)
