CALIPMATCH: Stata module for caliper matching without replacement
Michael Stepner () and
Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics
calipmatch matches case observations to control observations using "calipers", generating a new variable with a unique value for each group of matched cases and controls. It performs 1:1 or 1:m matching without replacement. Matched observations will have values within +/- the caliper width for every caliper matching variable. Matched observations will also have identical values for every exact matching variable, if any exact matching variables are specified.
Requires: Stata version 13
