New in the Stata Bookstore
Propensity Score Analysis: Statistical Methods and Applications, Second Edition
|Authors:||Shenyang Guo and Mark W. Fraser|
The second edition of Propensity Score Analysis is an excellent book on estimating treatment effects from observational data. New to the second edition are sections on multivalued treatments, generalized propensity-score estimators, and enhanced sections on propensity-score weighting estimators. Most of the examples in this book use Stata, and many of the estimators discussed in this new edition are implemented in the teffects command available in Stata 13.
