Project Description

Designmatch is an R package created by Dr. Zubizarreta’s research lab at HMS’ Department of Healthcare Policy. Designmatch includes functions for the construction of matched samples that are balanced and representative by design. Among others, these functions can be used for matching in observational studies with cases and controls, clinical studies with treated and control units, in related settings with instrumental variables, and in discontinuity designs.
