rdpower package provides Stata and R implementations of power, sample size, and minimum detectable effects calculations using robust bias-corrected local polynomial inference methods.
This work was supported by the National Science Foundation through grant SES-1357561.
This package was first released in Fall 2016, and had one major upgrade in Fall 2020.
