sc_estimator: solving for standard synthetic control weights

Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also

View source: R/estimator.R

Description

Solves for synthetic control weights up to the designated treatment period.

Usage

1
sc_estimator(donors, treated, treatment, nogurobi)

Arguments

donors

A TxN matrix of outcome paths for untreated units, each column being a control unit.

nogurobi

A logical value. If true, uses LowRankQP to solve the synthetic control estimator, rather than gurobi.

treated:

A Tx1 matrix of outcomes for the treated unit.

treatment:

An integer. The period T' in which forecasting begins (either the true treatment period or the first period after a cross-validation fold).

Value

A list. The named component weights.sc contains the vector of synthetic control weights. Weights are ordered in the same manner as the columns in donors. The objval.sc component contains the objective value (pre-period fit) of the synthetic control.
