rddtools is an R package designed to offer a set of tools to run all the steps required for a Regression Discontinuity Design (RDD) Analysis, from primary data visualisation to discontinuity estimation, sensitivity and placebo testing.

Installing rddtools

This github website hosts the source code. One of the easiest ways to install the package from github is by using the R package devtools:

if (!require('remotes')) install.packages('remotes')

Note however the latest version of rddtools only works with R 3.0, and that you might need to install Rtools if on Windows.


The (preliminary) documentation is available in the help files directly, as well as in the vignettes. The vignettes can be accessed from R.
