Many Statalist members have asked for my Propensity Score bibliography. Stas Kolenikov has kindly offered to post the bibliography in Endnote format on his webpage ( ).

For those of you not using Endnote (, it's a fabulous bibliography program, which allows the user to link any citation to its PUBMED page with one keystroke, where you can obtain full-text copies.

Or, you can simply browse the plain-text list which is copied here below, 165 citations beginning with Rosenbaum & Rubin's seminal 1983 publication, which is still one of the best tutorials for those interested in learning this method.
