This R package allows a dataset to be studied in an event-time frame and perform parametric/non-parametric analysis using several inference procedures. There are currently three adjustment functions and three inference strategies including the classical event study using market model and t-test (Brown and Warner 1985) along with an implementation of Augmented Market Model (Patnaik and Shah 2010). The package contains a user-friendly all encompassing function eventstudy to conduct an event study in one line of R code with other functions to provide more flexibility and control. It can also be used to develop novel research methods in event studies (Patnaik, Shah, and Singh 2013).
