Posted: 6/23/2022 (CSDE in the News)
CSDE Affiliates Mark Long, Jacob Vigdor, and CSDE Fellowship Alumna Hilary Wething recently published a National Bureau of Economics working paper with co-authors Ekaterina Jardim, Robert Plotnick, and Emma van Inwegen. The research was partially funded by CSDE. The research team demonstrate the weaknesses of boundary discontinuity as a causal method in policy research. They do so by estimating spillover effects of minimum wage increases on neighboring jurisdictions using geographically precise, longitudinal data.
