Jason, your first question seems easy to solve: I think your treatment variable and the outcome variable are identical. Recall the syntax for psmatch2, see -help psmatch2-. The second point left me a bit confused. Searching for -attnd- using -findit attnd- didn't really turn out any hints. Is -attnd- available from SSC? Maybe you can clarify your steps there? Maybe differences are due to the issue with the first question. Hope it helps Jan Bryla -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Jason Zarmulski Sent: 20. juni 2011 16:45 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: Ousout problem psmatch2 Dear Statalists, I got two problems, first one: I have a problem understanding the Output of my psmatch2 results. I'm new to this so it could be a trivial error, but I'm not sure. I wanted to do a nearest neighbor matching with replacement.

Second problem: I've done the nearest neighbor matching of the same data sample with the attnd function. My results are: . attnd stockprice2010 reldummy, pscore(mypscore) The program is searching the nearest neighbor of each treated unit. This operation may take a while.

Is the attnd matching with replacement? Any suggestions would be much appreciated Thanks Jason -- View this message in context: http://statalist.1588530.n2.nabble.com/Ousout-problem-psmatch2-tp6496035p6496035.html Sent from the Statalist mailing list archive at Nabble.com. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
