[R-pkgs] New Package pgsc

Philip Barrett
Dear all,

I am pleased to announce a new CRAN package, "pgsc" version 1.0.0 <
https://cran.r-project.org/package=pgsc>.

This package implements the extension of the synthetic control method to
allow for continuous and time-varying treatments described in Powell (2017)
<doi:10.7249/WR1142>.  Functions for both estimation and general hypothesis
testing are provided.

The vignette presents an extended example where panel regression suffers
from omitted variables bias -- even with time and unit fixed effects -- and
shows how the generalized synthetic control method produces unbiased
estimates of treatment effects.  The vignette can be found at <
https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/pgsc/vignettes/pgsc_vignette.pdf>.

Suggestions and comments much appreciated,

Philip Barrett
