Thank you, Richard and Autstin, The score in my dataset is actually from psmatch2. Although psmatch2 provides 1 to n matching, but it does not indicate which non-case observations are matched to the case obs, except for the nearest one. Also it allows duplicated matching. That is why I plan to do it by hand. I just checked the command, vmatch. I did not find that it provdes the option of 1 to N matching. Austin, can you decribe some more how to do it by hand. best Gao On Tue, Nov 18, 2008 at 11:32 AM, Austin Nichols <austinnichols@gmail.com> wrote: > Gao Liu-- > Actually, I think you are looking for -psmatch2- (findit psmatch2). > Or did you want to program the matching by hand?
