Subject   st: New -hte- package available from SSC

A new package called -hte-, authored by Ben Jann, Jennie E. Brand, and
Yu Xie, is available from the SSC Archive. In Stata type

. ssc install hte

to install the package. 

-hte- is a command to perform heterogeneous treatment effect analysis.
It uses -pscore- by Becker and Ichino (2002) to construct balanced
propensity score strata and, within each stratum, estimates the average
treatment effect. -hte- then tests for linear trend in treatment effects
using variance-weighted least squares. The stratum-specific treatment
effects and the estimated linear trend are displayed in a twoway graph.
Note that the -pscore- command is required, which is available from the
Stata Journal website (type -net sj 5-3 st0026_2- in Stata).

An application of this methodology appears in Brand and Xie (2010).

Best,
Ben Jann (jannb@ethz.ch)
