Description

Generates data from a partially linear IV regression model used in Chernozhukov, Hansen and Spindler (2015). The data generating process is defined as

z_i = Π x_i + ζ_i,

d_i = x_i'γ + z_i'δ + u_i,

y_i = α d_i + x_i'β + ε_i,

with

≤ft(\begin{array}{c} \varepsilon_i \\ u_i \\ ζ_i \\ x_i \end{array} \right) \sim \mathcal{N}≤ft(0, ≤ft(\begin{array}{cccc} 1 & 0.6 & 0 & 0 \\ 0.6 & 1 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0.25 I_{p_n^z} & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & Σ \end{array} \right) \right)

where Σ is a p_n^x \times p_n^x matrix with entries Σ_{kj} = 0.5^{|j-k|} and I_{p_n^z} is the p^z_n \times p^z_n identity matrix. β=γ iis a p^x_n-vector with entries β_j = \frac{1}{j^2}, δ is a p^z_n-vector with entries δ_j = \frac{1}{j^2} and Π = (I_{p_n^z}, O_{p_n^z \times (p_n^x - p_n^z)}).

make_pliv_CHS2015(
  n_obs,
  alpha = 1,
  dim_x = 200,
  dim_z = 150,
  return_type = "DoubleMLData"
)

Arguments

n_obs

(integer(1))
The number of observations to simulate.

alpha

(numeric(1))
The value of the causal parameter.

dim_x

(integer(1))
The number of covariates.

dim_z

(integer(1))
The number of instruments.

return_type

(character(1))
If "DoubleMLData", returns a DoubleMLData object. If "data.frame" returns a data.frame(). If "data.table" returns a data.table(). If "matrix" a named list() with entries X, y, d and z is returned. Every entry in the list is a matrix() object. Default is "DoubleMLData".

Value

A data object according to the choice of return_type.
