By James N. Druckman, Donald P. Green, James H. Kuklinski, Arthur Lupia

Laboratory experiments, survey experiments, and box experiments occupy a critical and turning out to be position within the self-discipline of political technology. The Cambridge instruction manual of Experimental Political Science is the 1st textual content to supply a accomplished review of ways experimental examine is reworking the sector. a few chapters clarify and outline center techniques in experimental layout and research. different chapters supply an highbrow heritage of the experimental circulation. during the ebook, major students evaluate groundbreaking learn and clarify, in own phrases, the starting to be effect of experimental political technology. The Cambridge instruction manual of Experimental Political Science offers a suite of insights that may be stumbled on nowhere else. Its subject matters are of curiosity not only to researchers who're engaging in experiments this day, but in addition to researchers who imagine that experiments may also help them make new and significant discoveries in political technology and past.

In addition to identifying mediating variables, researchers often want to understand the conditions under which an experimental treatment affects an important outcome. For example, do debates only affect (or affect to a greater extent) political independents? Do debates matter only when held in close proximity to Election Day? , partisanship, timing of debate [see Baron and Kenny 1986]). Documenting moderating relationships typically entails the use of statistical interactions between the moderating variable and the treatment.

Equations (2), (4), and (5) imply that the average treatment effect may be written as ATE = E (τi ) = E (Y i1 |T i = 1) −E (Y i0 |T i = 0). (6) Because E(Yi1 |Ti = 1) and E(Yi0 |Ti = 0) may be estimated directly from the data, Equation (6) suggests a solution to the problem of causal inference. To estimate an average treatment effect, we simply calculate the difference between two sample means: the average outcome in the treatment group minus the average outcome in the control group. This estimate is unbiased in the sense that, on average across hypothetical replications of the same experiment, it reveals the true average treatment effect.
