Matching Methods

Dates:
  • Mon 19 Jun 2017 09.00 - 19.00
  • Tue 20 Jun 2017 09.30 - 19.00
  Add to Calendar 2017-06-19 9:00 2017-06-20 19:00 Europe/Paris Matching Methods

The workshop will teach participants both the fundamentals of matching estimators but also provide coverage of new recent developments in the statistics literature on matched. First, students will be taught the basic mechanics of who matching can be used to adjust for observed confounders. Comparisons and contrasts will be drawn with the familiar regression model approach to adjustment. Next, students will be introduced to the basic concepts involved in matching. Topics covered include distance matrices, optimal vs greedy algorithms, calipers, fine balance, and balance statistics. This section will include hands on tutorials using multiple real data sets. Finally, students will be introduced to the topic of multilevel matching where the goal is to balance covariates at two levels. For example, the goal might be to pair both voters and voting districts.
