Best answer

Regression discontinuity designs: the treatment status changes discontinuously according to some underlying pre-treatment variable – the running variable


Basic idea: comparing units with similar values of the running variable, but different levels of treatment would lead to causal effect of the treatment at the threshold

The discontinuity is often created by a pre-fixed, artificial threshold of a policy

Treatment among the subjects around the threshold can be viewed as locally randomized
