SGPE PhD Summer School - Difference-in-Differences
The Summer School provides an opportunity to discuss the econometric methodologies associated with two popular research designs that use repeated cross-sections and panel data: the difference-in-differences design and the synthetic control design. It will bring the participant up to the cutting edge of how to handle complex situations like the inclusion of covariates and differential timing.
