Estimating the Variance of Measurement Errors in Running Variables of Sharp Regression Discontinuity Designs
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
A Correction for Regression Discontinuity Designs With Group-Specific Mismeasurement of the Running Variable
Abstract When the running variable in a regression discontinuity (RD) design is measured with error, identification of the local average treatment effect of interest will typically fail. While the
Regression Discontinuity Designs with Nonclassical Measurement Error
This paper develops a nonparametric identification analysis in regression discontinuity (RD) designs where each observable may contain measurement error. Our analysis allows the measurement error to
Regression Discontinuity Designs with Nonclassical Measurement Errors
This paper develops a nonparametric identification analysis in regression discontinuity (RD) designs where each observable may contain measurement error. Our analysis allows the measurement error to
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
Noise-Induced Randomization in Regression Discontinuity Designs
TLDR
A new approach to identification, estimation, and inference in regression discontinuity designs that exploits measurement error in the running variable is proposed and found to facilitate identification of both familiar estimands from the literature, as well as policy-relevant estimands that correspond to the effects of realistic changes to the existing treatment assignment rule.
Covariate Adjustment in Regression Discontinuity Designs
The Regression Discontinuity (RD) design is a widely used non-experimental method for causal inference and program evaluation. While its canonical formulation only requires a score and an outcome
SYNTHETIC REGRESSION DISCONTINUITY ESTIMATING TREATMENT EFFECTS USING MACHINE LEARNING
In the standard regression discontinuity setting, treatment assignment is based on whether a unit’s observable score (running variable) crosses a known threshold. We propose a two-stage method to
Regression Discontinuity Designs
The Regression Discontinuity (RD) design is one of the most widely used non-experimental methods for causal inference and program evaluation. Over the last two decades, statistical and econometric
Regression Discontinuity Designs Based on Population Thresholds: Pitfalls and Solutions
In many countries, important features of municipal government (such as the electoral system, mayors' salaries, and the number of councillors) depend on whether the municipality is above or below

Regression Discontinuity Applications with Rounding Errors in the Running Variable
Many empirical applications of regression discontinuity (RD) models use a running variable that is rounded and hence is discrete, e.g., age in years, or birth weight in ounces. This paper shows that
Identification and Inference in Regression Discontinuity Designs with a Manipulated Running Variable
A key assumption in regression discontinuity analysis is that units cannot manipulate the value of their running variable in a way that guarantees or avoids assignment to the treatment. Standard
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
Manipulation of the Running Variable in the Regression Discontinuity Design: A Density Test
Standard sufficient conditions for identification in the regression discontinuity design are continuity of the conditional expectation of counterfactual outcomes in the running variable. These
Weak Identification in Fuzzy Regression Discontinuity Designs
In fuzzy regression discontinuity (FRD) designs, the treatment effect is identified through a discontinuity in the conditional probability of treatment assignment. We show that when identification is

TLDR
This article provides an overview of recent research papers that derive estimation methods that provide consistent estimates for nonlinear models with measurement errors, and with misclassification of discrete variables.
Evaluating the Effect of an Antidiscrimination Law Using a Regression-Discontinuity Design
