Notes
Partially linear regression (PLR) models take the form
\[ \begin{align}\begin{aligned}Y = D \theta_0 + g_0(X) + \zeta, & &\mathbb{E}(\zeta | D,X) = 0,\\D = m_0(X) + V, & &\mathbb{E}(V | X) = 0,\end{aligned}\end{align} \]where \(Y\) is the outcome variable and \(D\) is the policy variable of interest. The high-dimensional vector \(X = (X_1, \ldots, X_p)\) consists of other confounding covariates, and \(\zeta\) and \(V\) are stochastic errors.
