MSCMT: Multivariate Synthetic Control Method Using Time Series

Three generalizations of the synthetic control method (which has already an implementation in package 'Synth') are implemented: first, 'MSCMT' allows for using multiple outcome variables, second, time series can be supplied as economic predictors, and third, a well-defined cross-validation approach can be used. Much effort has been taken to make the implementation as stable as possible (including edge cases) without losing computational efficiency. A detailed description of the main algorithms is given in Becker and Klößner (2018) <doi:10.1016/j.ecosta.2017.08.002>.
