Estimating Average Treatment Effects Using Stata


Learn how and when to use Stata’s treatment-effects estimators to analyze treatment effects in observational data. Use regression adjustment, inverse probability weights, doubly robust methods, propensity-score matching, and covariate matching to estimate average treatment effects (ATEs) and ATEs on the treated. We will cover the conceptual and theoretical underpinnings of treatment effects as well as many examples using Stata.

After presenting the potential-outcome framework and discussing the estimated parameters, the course discusses six estimators:

  1. regression-adjustment estimator
  2. inverse-probability-weighted (IPW) estimator
  3. augmented IPW estimator
  4. IPW regression-adjustment estimator
  5. nearest-neighbor matching estimator
  6. propensity-score matching estimator
