Patricia,

I wonder if matching is appropriate in your case. Why don't you
consider a duration-model approach, and more precisely the
timing-of-events method from Abbring and van den Berg?

Here are two interesting articles on that topic:

Abbring J. and G. van den Berg, 2004, "Analyzing the effect of
dynamically assigned treatments using duration models, binary
treatment models, and panel data models". Empirical Economics, 29(1).
A preprint version is available from Jaap Abbrings homepage:
http://www.econ.vu.nl/medewerkers/jabbring/papers/empec_final.pdf

Fredriksson, P. and P. Johansson, 2004, "Dynamic Treatment Assignment
-- The Consequences for Evaluations using Observational Data".
Manuscript, Department of Economics, Uppsala University.

Best wishes,

jean
