Sample text

The analysis in Lalonde (1986) is based on one year of pretreatment earnings. But as Ashenfelter (1978), and Ashenfelter and Card (1985) suggest, the use of more than one year of pretreatment earnings is key in accurately estimating the treatment effect, because many people who volunteer for training programs experience a drop (“Ashenfelter’s dip”) in their earnings just prior to entering the training program. Using the Lalonde sample of 297 treated and 425 control units, we exclude the observations for which earnings in 1974 could not be obtained, thus arriving at a reduced sample of 185 treated observations and 260 control observations.

We use a logistic probability model, but other standard models yield similar results. One issue is what functional form of the preintervention variables to include in the logit. We rely on the following proposition: CAUSAL EFFECTS IN NONEXPERIMENTAL STUDIES—DEHEJIA 29 Proposition 2 (Rosenbaum and Rubin, 1983) If p(Xi ) is the propensity score, then: Xi ⊥⊥ Ti | p(Xi ). Proposition 2 asserts that, conditional on the propensity score, the covariates are independent of assignment to treatment, so that, for observations with the same propensity score, the distribution of covariates should be the same across the treatment and comparison groups.

Meng  2004 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd ISBN: 0-470-09043-X 25 26 CAUSAL EFFECTS IN NONEXPERIMENTAL STUDIES—DEHEJIA The key insight for estimating treatment effects in nonexperimental settings, when assignment to treatment is based on observed variables, is identified in Rubin (1978a): conditional on the pretreatment covariates that determine assignment to treatment, assignment to treatment is essentially random. When there are only a few relevant variables, this provides a simple means of estimating the treatment effect: by matching or grouping observations on the basis of pretreatment covariates, estimating the treatment effect within each group, and then averaging over these treatment effects to obtain the overall treatment effect.
