Matrix Completion Methods for Causal Panel Data Models
National Bureau of Economic Research, 2018.
In this paper we study methods for estimating causal effects in settings with panel data, where a subset of units are exposed to a treatment during a subset of periods, and the goal is estimating counterfactual (untreated) outcomes for the treated unit/period combinations. We develop a class of matrix completion estimators that uses the o...More
