Estimating the dose-response function through the GLM approach
This paper revises the estimation of the dose-response function as in Hirano and Imbens (2004) by proposing a flexible way to estimate the generalized propensity score when the treatment variable is not necessarily normally distributed. We also provide a set of programs that accomplish this task by using the GLM in the first step of the computation.
