I have done the power analysis and I know that I am really only able to detect effect sizes that are around 0. How can I make my work as transparent and as useful for all the folks who might want to include my findings in a subsequent metanalysis.
I must confess that when I see results like this I always wonder if the authors really believe them—I mean believe them enough to put money on it. For the specific suggestion, there is already another study looking into these elections. Put simply, in a close race, fewer voters with weaker preferences for either candidate are making the decision.
And the health of the candidate may very well play into it. It could be something as simple as age, but it could also be being in or out of shape. It could also be that healthier candidates are more able to engage in the sort of retail politics that wins close elections. Years ago, there were studies that showed that winning an Oscar made you live longer, until some scholars factored in the inherent bias of the academy toward healthier actors.
The replication data as far as I can tell cannot balance on the health history and appearance of individual candidates. This could be, but I think the key point is my item 4 above. These data are so noisy, and any realistic effect size will be so small, that all these analyses are just sifting through noise. Andrew, thanks for the analysis. My thought process is if winning or losing an election does not have an impact on longevity, then the magnitude of the win or loss would also not have explanatory power.
This data would indeed be interesting to look at to rule out potential self-selection effects. I am mentioning this study here as they provide a similar point in footnote 20 i. Unfortunately, such data to our best knowledge is unavailable for the vast majority of candidates.
If the forcing variable is only weakly associated with the observed outcome variable, then there will be large residual variance. If, moreover, the average treatment effect at the cutoff is small, then any estimate of it will be extremely noisy. This problem is made even worse if our curve fitting models have bad extrapolative properties e.
Some analytic correctives include controlling for important pre-treatment predictors of the observed outcome to reduce residual variance, and fitting a model that estimates the discontinuity in a way that is interpolative rather than extrapolative e. Did I pass this ideological Turing Test? Why do you say we need to control for differences between groups?
In particular, there seemed to be confusion about how the forcing variable could possibly be an unimportant variable to control for, when in the context of a sharp RDD it is the sole determinant of treatment assignment.
If the forcing variable is unimportant in this sense, we will have large residual variance, and the design will accordingly suffer from large type S and type M errors. Not endorsing EJMR. Using LOESS with different bandwidths, we can investigate assumptions of smoothness vs of rapid changes near 0.
Bandwidths of 0. A bandwidth of 0. The claimed effect size also happens to be the grid-size here… 5 years. There is nowhere on these functions where you can get a jump of 5 to 10 years without cherry picking out two peaks. So if Erik is correct, it means that the whole of the effect is canceled out precisely by the covariates he adjusts for for these individuals.
Good thing they won and extended their life just exactly to the average. This is my point 4 in the above post. The study never had a chance. It would even come up if you were doing a randomized controlled trial. To do causal inference, you need identification and you need precision. All the details of the discontinuity analysis are a distraction—but they can be useful in that they can help us understand what went wrong. In particular, the third and fourth graphs above show a characteristic pattern that we often see when regression discontinuity analyses go wrong: the fitted curve shows an artifactual discontinuity that is there to counteract an artifactual local negative slope.
In addition to the false sense of security that it gives to researchers similar to the problem that comes from trust in statistically significant estimates that come from randomized experiments , the big problem with regression discontinuity is that researchers are encouraged to forget about all the other background variables in the problem.
So why talk about forking paths? The reason why I talk about forking paths is that this helps us understand how it is that researchers can come up with statistically significant results from data where the noise overwhelms the signal. We talk about forking paths to resolve the cognitive dissonance that otherwise arises from the apparent strength of the published evidence.
To put it another way: the top graph in the above post, reproduced from the published article, looks pretty impressive. Forking paths helps us understand how this happens.
You ask why I recommend first comparing group means and then adding adjustments from there. I recommend this because it helps me better understand what the statistical analysis is doing. Finally, I find it super-frustrating that people can read these critiques and still think the original studies are OK. I think that some of this is a lack of understanding of subtle statistical concepts, some of it is rule-following, and some of it is people taking sides.
Both of your 5s make more sense now. And on 6, I agree. As I mentioned in an earlier comment, when I see these papers I have the same instinctive reaction as you, and find it odd that people buy these results despite their manifest implausibility. And I worry many of the people who actually employ this design in their work have the same confusions about your analysis that I did, which might be why they continue to disregard it.
I fully agree that precision is crucial. We also agree that we find a huge effect in our study. Again, we would love to have a lot more data. Accordingly, based upon previous research, our discussion and the tests we provide, my best guess is that the LATE is closer to 5 years than 0 years, but definitely also closer to 5 years than 10 years. I still believe that there is something useful here.
I can understand you find this frustrating given your view on our study that it never had a chance and your views on RDD more generally. The comments above have been very constructive and useful — and I believe that something can be gained from our study.
You should see that form the get-go. The distribution of the raw data is random. I mean dude if I tried to publish data like that for some chemical and claim an effect on life expectancy, even the EPA would cringe.
Yet you persist in defending it. Just withdraw it. Issue a mea culpa, learn from it and move on. Work like this erodes the integrity of science. You can handle it. Thanks for the comment. No worries, I can handle it. But I agree that the discussion here has been productive. I find it a bit surprising that the style one should use for something as fundamental as regression analysis should have changed hugely, but that may simply indicate how bad I have been at keeping up with the evolution of good R style.
It was a random observation that I should not have included in my blog post. Mail will not be published. July 2, at am. Reply to this comment. Erik says:. Paolo Inglese says:. Ram says:.

What's Going On Trouble Man Let's Get It On In , the song was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a new category for singles. Eventually the instrumental came to the attention of record producer Archie Bleyer of Cadence Records , who hated it, particularly after Wray poked holes in his amplifier's speakers  to make the recording sound more like the live version.
But Bleyer's stepdaughter loved it, so he released it despite his misgivings. It was banned in several US radio markets because the term 'rumble' was a slang term for a gang fight and it was feared that the piece's harsh sound glorified juvenile delinquency. Bob Dylan once referred to it as "the best instrumental ever". An updated version of the instrumental was released by Wray in as "Rumble '69" Mr. G Records, G The piece is popular in various entertainment media.
