Abstract: We introduce the \texttt{Stata} (and \texttt{R}) package \texttt{rdmulti}, which includes three commands (\texttt{rdmc}, \texttt{rdmcplot}, \texttt{rdms}) for analyzing Regression Discontinuity (RD) designs with multiple cutoffs or multiple scores. The command \texttt{rdmc} applies to non-cumulative and cumulative multi-cutoff RD settings. It calculates pooled and cutoff-specific RD treatment effects, and provides robust bias-corrected inference procedures. Post estimation and inference is allowed. The command \texttt{rdmcplot} offers RD plots for multi-cutoff settings. Finally, the command \texttt{rdms} concerns multi-score settings, covering in particular cumulative cutoffs and two running variables contexts. It also calculates pooled and cutoff-specific RD treatment effects, provides robust bias-corrected inference procedures, and allows for post-estimation estimation and inference. These commands employ the \texttt{Stata} (and \texttt{R}) package \texttt{rdrobust} for plotting, estimation, and inference. Companion \texttt{R} functions with the same syntax and capabilities are provided.
