Zelig and Matching in R with an Application to Conflict and Leader Tenure
Andrew Little discusses two econometric packages developed by Gary King of Harvard, and how he has used them in his research at the August, 2009 NYC R Statistical Programming Meetup.
Zelig – a single, easy-to-use package that can estimate, help interpret, and present the results of a large range of statistical methods.
MatchIt – implements a wide range of sophisticated matching methods, making it possible to greatly reduce the dependence of causal inferences on hard-to-justify, but commonly made, statistical modeling assumptions.
