Geographic Difference-in-Discontinuities

Abstract: A recent econometric literature has critiqued the use of regression discontinuities where administrative borders serves as the 'cutoff'. Identification in this context is difficult since multiple treatments can change at the cutoff and individuals can easily sort on either side of the border. This note extends the difference-in-discontinuities framework discussed in Grembi et. al. (2016) to a geographic setting. The paper formalizes the identifying assumptions in this context which will allow for the removal of time-invariant sorting and compound-treatments similar to the difference-in-differences methodology.
