optmatch (0.9-5)

Functions for Optimal Matching.


Provides routines for distance based bipartite matching to reduce covariate imbalance between treatment and control groups in observational studies. Routines are provided to generate distances from GLM models (propensity score matching) and formulas (Euclidean and Mahalanobis matching), stratified matching (exact matching), and calipers. Results of the fullmatch routine are guaranteed to provide minimum average within matched set distance.
