Debiasing regression with controls
// Part 1: De-biasing a parameter estimate using controls
// Develop some data generating process for data X’s and for outcome Y, with some (potentially multi-armed) treatment variable and treatment effect. Like last week, you should strongly consider "simulating" data along the lines of your group project.
// This DGP should include strata groups and continuous covariates, as well as random noise. Make sure that the strata groups affect the outcome Y and are of different sizes, and make the probability that an individual unit receives treatment vary across strata groups. You will want to create the strata groups first, then use a command like expand or merge to add them to an individual-level data set.
