This is sufficiently unclear that I can't understand what you are doing.
What does "k nearest matching method" mean? 

Regardless, it is always recommended that before posting a query to the
listserve, you check the archives. Moreover, you could easily perform a
search "all" in Stata to find all sorts of programs. Additionally, you could
perform a google search for "performing propensity score matching in Stata".

All of these methods would provide you with specific answers to your very
general question.

Now that I got that out of the way, I suggest you look at -psmatch- (findit
psmatch), which is a very complete user-written package.

Dear Statalisters,

similar characteristics suggesting them to use X item and the only
difference between these firms is their actual use of X item. I am using K

Sample Test 

       X item Users           X item Non Users   
N   Mean Median            Mean Median            Diff in Mean 

Could anyone please tell me how can i do this?
