Estimation of treatment effects with high-dimensional controls
We propose methods for inference on the average effect of a treatment on a scalar outcome in the presence of very many controls. Our setting is a partially linear regression model containing the treatment/policy variable and a large number p of controls or series terms, with p that is possibly much larger than the sample size n, but where only s
