As the weights become arbitrarily large for the propensity scores being close to one or zero, we propose to shrink the propensity scores away from these boundaries. Using a comprehensive Monte Carlo study we show that this simple method substantially reduces the mean squared error of the estimators in finite samples.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Pohlmeier, Winfried</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>A Simple and Successul Method to Shrink the Weight</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-02-05T07:15:24Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Seiberlich, Ruben R.</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:contributor>Uysal, S.
