This course provides an overview of design-based inference and experimental methods, with a focus on historical political economy. Each week presents the foundations of new method, along with innovative applications. Students will leave the course with a better understanding of methodologies such as regression discontinuity design, instrumental variables, differences-in-differences, and quasi versus natural experiments; as well as applications using plausibly exogenous geographic, climatic, or economic shocks, and potentially endogenous historical institutions.
