  • Subject: Statistics - Methodology

The strata-specific treatment effect or so-called blip for a randomly drawn strata of confounders defines a random variable and a corresponding cumulative distribution function. However, the CDF is not pathwise differentiable, necessitating a kernel smoothing approach t... View more
