    Abstract : We propose a variable selection method for estimating decision rules of optimal sequential treatment assignments when the decision-relevant variables are unknown.

This paper extends upon the results of \citeA{Dara} reviewing the use of LPM to examine if alcohol prohibition reduces domestic violence. READ MORE
