Luca--
I will present Stata code for implementing RD designs in Stata at
NASUG in August (http://www.stata.com/meeting/6nasug/), and make the
code available on SSC around the same time.  My original intent was to
provide a wide-ranging summary of many considerations and potential
pitfalls when implementing RD as well; some of the apparent necessity
of that discussion has been obviated by the publication this month of
a working paper by Imbens and Lemieux: http://nber.org/papers/w13039
If you want a plain-English description of the method, you may find
this helpful: http://www.urban.org/toolkit/data-methods/regression.cfm
Let me know if you have any specific questions.

Dear all,
I am working on cash transfers in South Africa: as such transfers are
delivered on a means test base, I thought that an appropriate instrument
might be the regression discontinuity design. My question is, how can I
perform such instrument in Stata? Any advice on specific reading on this
instrument are welcome.
Thank you in advance,
Luca
