bacondecomp

bacondecomp is a package with tools to perform the Goodman-Bacon decomposition for differences-in-differences with variation in treatment timing. The decomposition can be done with and without time-varying covariates.

Installation

You can install bacondecomp 0.1.0 from CRAN:

install.packages("bacondecomp")

You can install the development version of bacondecomp from GitHub:

library(devtools)
install_github("evanjflack/bacondecomp")

Functions

Data

Example

This is a basic example which shows you how to use the bacon() function to decompose the two-way fixed effects estimate of the effect of an education reform on future earnings following Goodman (2019, JOLE).

library(bacondecomp)
df_bacon <- bacon(incearn_ln ~ reform_math,
                  data = bacondecomp::math_reform,
                  id_var = "state",
                  time_var = "class")

library(ggplot2)

ggplot(df_bacon) +
  aes(x = weight, y = estimate, shape = factor(type)) +
  geom_point() +
  geom_hline(yintercept = 0) +
  labs(x = "Weight", y = "Estimate", shape = "Type")
