This paper proposes a bias correction formula for the estimated RD LATE. The standard errors for the bias corrected estimate are then obtianed by the Delta method. Alternatively, one can directly bias-correct the polynomial regression terms before estimation, which allows for obtianing the standard errors directly. For this conveneint alternative approach, please see the Online Appendix I to my empirical paper.
