I would reiterate what one other responder wrote: that this request is too vague to give any specific advice.

But in addition to -psmatch-, which was already mentioned, you might consider -mahapick-, which includes several programs to generate a propensity score in various different ways.
-ssc desc mahapick-.

(mahapick is expected to get an update soon, but for only minor changes to existing programs.)

Dear Statalisters,

i want to use Propensity score matching method to identify firms which has
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
nearest matching method. Now after identifying firms i want to do a Matched
Sample Test

N   Mean Median            Mean Median            Diff in Mean
