I'm working on a project predicting the effect of exposure to violence
on the health of American high school students.  I am attempting to
use propensity score analysis to make causal inference about the
treatment effect; however, because these students are nested within
schools which vary in their mean level of violence, I have predicted
the propensity scores using Hierarchical Linear Modeling software.

My question is: Is there a way to use Becker and Ichino's pscore
program for STATA to distribute the students into blocks and check
that the balancing property is met -- but to do so using propensity
scores that have already been calculated, rather than by allowing the
program to calculate them itself?  And if not, could such a function
be devised?
