MatchIt: Nonparametric Preprocessing for Parametric Casual Inference

Selects matched samples of the original treated and control groups with similar covariate distributions – can be used to match exactly on covariates, to match on propensity scores, or perform a variety of other matching procedures. The package also implements a series of recommendations offered in Ho, Imai, King, and Stuart (2007) <doi:10.1093/pan/mpl013>.
