This is an example of matching with 3 neighbors.
psmatch2 improved, pscore(pscore) outcome(diarr) common caliper(.001)
There are observations with identical propensity score values.
The sort order of the data could affect your results.
Make sure that the sort order is random before calling psmatch2.
