Regression Discontinuity design is a quasi-experimental impact evaluation design which attempts to find the causal effects of interventions by assigning a threshold(cut off point) above and below which the treatment is assigned. Observations closely on either side of the threshold are compared to estimate the average treatment effect. Regression Discontinuity is done in situations when actual random assignment of control and treatment might not be feasible due to various reasons.

Regression Discontinuity design is a quasi-experimental impact evaluation design which attempts to find the causal effects of interventions by assigning a threshold(cut off point) above and below which the treatment is assigned. Observations closely on either side of the threshold are compared to estimate the average treatment effect. Regression Discontinuity is done in situations when actual random assignment of control and treatment might not be feasible due to various reasons.
