sumstats_all.log” as it states in the readme file. I found
sumstats_rkd.log. I was able to find all values for the variables listed under the RD Sample column in Table 1 though the section order of the output in the log file is somewhat different.
t2_covariates.xlsx” and the areas that are highlighted in yellow that are different from the manuscript. The differences are not numerous and are minor and do not change the interpretation. (Image provided)
t3_cross_section.xlsx” match manuscript.
t4_heterogeneity.xlsx” and the areas that are highlighted in yellow. Differences mostly in the point estimates at the 3rd decimal place with some differences in standard errors as well.
t5_otherdata.xlsx” and the areas that are highlighted in yellow. Minor differences driven by sample size changes.
table6.xlsx” match manuscript.
tablea1.xlsx” match manuscript.
tablea2.xlsx” match manuscript.
NOTE from AEA Data Editor: This is normally a failure - we expect to have clearly marked output enter a table.
5) Figures: I reviewed all the generated PDF files that contained all figures and they visually matched to the manuscript.
