This package provides the tools to undertake estimation in Regression Discontinuity Designs. Both sharp and fuzzy designs are supported. Estimation is accomplished using local linear regression. A provided function will utilize Imbens-Kalyanaraman optimal bandwidth calculation. A function is also included to test the assumption of no-sorting effects.

Version: 0.57 * Fixed covariate handling. Version: 0.56 * Fixed bug in plot.RD. Version: 0.55 * Added dependence on Formula. * Fixed an odd bug with fuzzy RD, which caused misreporting of summary information. Version: 0.54 * Removed LICENSE to comport with CRAN policy. * Renamed VERSION to NEWS. Version: 0.53 * Fixed bug in the estimation of LATEs away from zero. Version: 0.52 * Fixed bug with sharp RD estimation. * Fixed bug when cutpoint not equal to zero. Version: 0.51 * Fixed a bug which resulted in crashes of the summary.RD and plot.RD functions. * Big changes in the handling of bandwidths. * Now accepts a vector of bandwidths as inputs. * Some outputs have been modified to reflect this change.
