Resumen:
Nonparametric estimators for average and quantile treatment effects are constructed using Fractile Graphical Analysis, under the identifying assumption that selection to treatment is based on observable characteristics. The proposed method has two steps: first, the propensity score is estimated, and, second, a blocking estimation procedure using this estimate is used to compute treatment effects. In both cases, the estimators are proved to be consistent. Monte Carlo results show a better performance than other procedures based on the propensity score. Finally, these estimators are applied to a job training dataset.ffects are constructed using Fractile Graphical Analysis, under the identifying assumption that selection to treatment is based on observable characteristics.
