    Does local linear regression include a weighting Kernel?

    That's what I thought as well. However, there is one source that states: "The parametric approach tries to pick the right model to fit a given data set, while the non-parametric approach tries to pick the right data set to fit a given model" "In the simplest terms, this strategy (local linear...

    Does local linear regression include a weighting Kernel?

    Hey, I am applying a Regression Discontinuity Design (RDD) to estimate the effect of a policy change. In RDD I can apply the parametric approach (polynomial regression) and the non-parametric approach (local regression). The parametric approach is clear to me and also the basic idea of the...

    Regression Discontinuity Design

    Thank you for the answer. I am aware that Regression Discontinuity Design is a semi-experimental method. However, I am still wondering how the application itself (so the regression equation) differs from a regression with a dummy variable? I am aware that the underlying idea of RDD is different...

    Regression Discontinuity Design

    Hey, I am new here and hope that you can help me with my questions as I cannot find an answer myself. For a paper I am working on, I did some research about Regression Discontinuity Design. I was wondering what exactly the difference to a simple dummy variable is? For example, if I have a...
