  • I analyze treatment effects in situations when agents endogenously select into the treatment group and into the observed sample. As a theoretical contribution, I propose pointwise sharp bounds for the marginal treatment effect (MTE) of interest within the always-observed subpopulation under monotonicity assumptions. Moreover, I impose an extra mean dominance assumption to tighten the previous bounds. I further discuss how to identify those bounds when the support of the propensity score is… CONTINUE READING
