**Abstract:**
rdrobust implements local polynomial Regression Discontinuity (RD) point estimators with robust bias-corrected confidence intervals and inference procedures developed in Calonico, Cattaneo and Titiunik (Econometrica, 2014), Calonico, Cattaneo and Farrell (Stata Journal, 2017), and Calonico, Cattaneo, Farrell and Titiunik (JASA, 2018). It also computes alternative estimation and inference procedures available in the literature. Companion commands are: rdbwselect for data-driven bandwidth selection, and rdplot for data-driven RD plots (see Calonico, Cattaneo and Titiunik (JASA, 2015) for details).
