Matching using SAS

match_image.fw.pngIf you're looking for more information about my SAS code for propensity score matching, go to the propensity score page. William Thomas, from the University of Minnesota, wrote a SAS macro that simplifies matching using my code (see the propensity score page). For a list of papers that cited the code, go here. There are a lot of alternatives if you prefer to use Stata or R. Here is a list of software to do matching. Stata 13/14 added a bunch of treatment effect tools that include commands for matching. If you're learning about matching, see my slides and Stata code here.
