I’m working on putting together a spring/summer reading group beginning in April 2021 to dig into the many papers pushing forward difference-in-differences, two-way fixed-effects estimators, and event study research methods.
If you’re anything like me then you’ve got a folder with a bunch of these papers in it but haven’t gotten around to digging into them yet. Maybe you’ve been pointed to them (or have done the pointing) in referee reports. I figured that there was probably a bunch of people in the same boat and the idea of the reading group came about.
I’ve set up a Slack for planning and developing the reading list and schedule. Please email me to be added to the mailing list.
Christine Cai has an awesome resource that we’ll likely be using heavily to decide which papers to cover: https://christinecai.github.io/PublicGoods/applied_micro_methods.pdf
Chloe East has a similar series of virtual brownbags that you should also check out: https://www.chloeneast.com/metrics-discussions.html
Here’s a twitter thread that has slides form some of the authors of these papers, another great resource for presenters in the reading group!
