According to Fox News, whatever that means, the report should be "fair
and balanced". More serious, it is fair to report both results. Weigh
more balance (more matching of treatment and control variables)
against the number of observations. Are some observations
theoretically more relevant to your study? More observations are not
There are several "matching" or "robust" solutions in Stata. I would
also consider the R program MatchIt, see the paper and software at
