Example text

Because we obtain this subset by looking at pretreatment covariates, we do not CAUSAL EFFECTS IN NONEXPERIMENTAL STUDIES—DEHEJIA 31 the covariates for the treatment and control groups is not significantly different. 1 presents the sample characteristics of the two comparison groups and the treatment group. The differences are striking: the PSID and CPS sample units are eight to nine years older than those in the NSW group; their ethnic and racial composition is different; they have on average completed high school degrees, while NSW participants were by and large high school dropouts; and, most dramatically, pretreatment earnings are much higher, by more than 10, 000, for the comparison units than for the treated units, by more than $10,000.

First, we estimate the propensity score, separately for each nonexperimental sample consisting of the experimental treatment units and the specified set of comparison units (PSID or CPS). 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 ).

For the CPS, Prob(Ti = 1) = F(age, age2 , education, education2 , no degree, married, black, Hispanic, RE74, RE75, u74, u75, educ × RE74, age3 ). 1 Histogram of estimated propensity score, National Support Work Demonstration and Current Population Survey. Estimating the treatment effect We use stratification and matching on the propensity score to group the treatment units with the comparison units whose estimated propensity scores are greater than the minimum—or less than the maximum—propensity score for treatment units.
