Bandwidth Sensitivity Simulation for Multivariate Regression Discontinuity

Description

mrd_sens_bw refits the supplied model with varying bandwidths. All other aspects of the model are held constant.

Usage

mrd_sens_bw(object, approach = c("center", "univ1", "univ2"), bws)

Arguments

object

An object returned by mrd_est or mrd_impute.

approach

A string of the approaches to be refitted, choosing from c("center", "univ1", "univ2").

bws

A positive numeric vector of the bandwidths for refitting an mrd object.

Value

mrd_sens_bw returns a dataframe containing the estimate est and standard error se for each supplied bandwidth and for the Imbens-Kalyanaraman (2012) optimal bandwidth, bw, and for each supplied approach, model. Approaches are either user specified ("usr") or based on the optimal bandwidth ("origin").

Examples

set.seed(12345)
x1 <- runif(10000, -1, 1)
x2 <- rnorm(10000, 10, 2)
cov <- rnorm(10000)
y <- 3 + 2 * x1 + 1 * x2 + 3 * cov + 10 * (x1 >= 0) + 5 * (x2 >= 10) + rnorm(10000)
# front.bw arugment was supplied to speed up the example
# users should choose appropriate values for front.bw
mrd <- mrd_est(y ~ x1 + x2 | cov,
               cutpoint = c(0, 10), t.design = c("geq", "geq"), front.bw=c(1,1,1))
mrd_sens_bw(mrd, approach = "univ1", bws = seq(0.1, 1, length.out = 3))
