26.10 Multiple Treatment

When you have 2 treatments in a setting, you should always try to model both of them under one regression to see whether they are significantly different.

  • Never use one treated groups as control for the other, and run separate regression.
  • Could check this answer

\[ \begin{aligned} Y_{it} &= \alpha + \gamma_1 Treat1_{i} + \gamma_2 Treat2_{i} + \lambda Post_t \\ &+ \delta_1(Treat1_i \times Post_t) + \delta_2(Treat2_i \times Post_t) + \epsilon_{it} \end{aligned} \]
