Счастливы вместе: оценки методом разрывного дизайна

In the paper we use the RLMS-HSE 1994–2016 data to estimate changes in life satisfaction caused by cohabitation and marriage. We made empirical estimates by discontinuity design within the classical linear regression, ordered choice model, and model based on dichotomisation of dependent variable. The positive effects of changes in marital status on women’s life satisfaction are observed in all the cases but the marriage after living together. For men, the only effect of starting cohabitation is robust to the model choice and reduction of the width of observations window.
