The Internal and External Validity of the Regression Discontinuity Design: A Meta-Analysis of 15 Within-Study-Comparisons | JPAM Featured Article

Regression discontinuity (RD) is generally acknowledged as the most rigorous non-experimental method for obtaining internally valid impact estimates. The study tests the efficacy of RD by comparing RD causal estimates at the treatment cutoff to those from Randomized Control Trials also estimated at this same cutoff. The study identifies 15 previously completed within-study-comparisons that explicitly examined this issue by assuming the RCT results are unbiased and comparing them to RD results.

December 12, 2013 10:38 AM

The Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research at the National Institutes of Health will like to you to join the upcoming Twitter chat in the series on Careers in Behavioral and Social Sciences. The first chat in this series will include both scientific and administrative careers at NIH. The panelists on this chat will include: an intramural researcher, program officer, scientific review officer, health science administrator, post-doctoral fellow, and a presidential management fellow. This session will be live on Friday, December 13th from 2 – 3 pm EST. Please join the conversation using #OBSSRchat. You may follow the stream of tweets at @NIHOBSSR or online.
OBSSR is dedicated to the training and career development of the next generation. This series will highlight types of jobs available persons with MA, MS, MPH, or PhDs in the fields of Behavioral Sciences, Psychology, Social Sciences, Public Health, and Epidemiology.  This is not a job fair. Rather it is an opportunity to explore different career paths; to understand the different responsibilities and expectations; and to hear advice on strategies for applying and for succeeding in the field.
