Dear Richard,

In terms of reading, have a look at

Imbens and Lemieux (2007): RD designs: A guide to practice
van der Klaauw (2008): RD analysls: A survey of recent developments in economics

and the chapter in Angrist and PIschke (2008): Mostly Harmless Econometrics

For Stata, there are several procedures, e.g.:
- Nichols: http://ideas.repec.org/c/boc/bocode/s456888.html
- Imbens: http://www.economics.harvard.edu/faculty/imbens/software_imbens

Hope that helps.

Guo
