Hi All, 

I am interested in comparing medical students vs. other students on a number of measures from a survey study.  The medical student subgroup accounts for 12% of the total sample. 

I would, therefore, like to match the medical students with a sub-group of the other students based on socio-demographic variables  - so that the two samples are more similar in size. 

How can I achieve this in Stata? is there a matching command/macro I can download and use?  Has anyone done anything similar and can share some tips? 

Many thanks,
