Thanks to Kit Baum the new package -poparms- is available from SSC.

-poparms- estimates means and quantiles of the potential-outcome distributions induced by a discrete, multivalued treatment using two of the semiparametric efficient estimators derived in Cattaneo (2010). In an article submitted to the Stata Journal (http://www-personal.umich.edu/~cattaneo/papers/Cattaneo-Drukker-Holland_2012_STATA.pdf) Cattaneo, Drukker, and Holland discuss how to use this command to estimate population averaged treatment effects and population quantile treatment effects.

Type

. net install poparms

to install the command.  Type

. net get poparms

to get a do-file with some examples and an example dataset.

Best,
