As the weights in these estimators can become arbitrarily large for the propensity scores close to the boundaries, three different variants of a shrinkage method for the propensity scores are analyzed. The results of a comprehensive Monte Carlo study demonstrate that this simple method substantially reduces the mean squared error of the estimators in finite samples, and is superior to several popular trimming approaches over a wide range of settings.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Pohlmeier, Winfried</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2016-08</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Seiberlich, Ruben</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>A simple and successful shrinkage method for weighting estimators of treatment effects</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Uysal, Selver Derya</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/35123"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:contributor>Uysal, Selver Derya</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-09-05T13:26:55Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Pohlmeier, Winfried</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
