Radius matching on the propensity score with bias adjustment : tuning parameters and finite sample behaviour

Huber, Martin ; Lechner, Michael ; Steinmayr, Andreas

In: Empirical economics, 2015, vol. 49, no. 1, p. 1-31

Using a simulation design that is based on empirical data, a recent study by Huber et al. (J Econom 175:1–21, 2013) finds that distance-weighted radius matching with bias adjustment as proposed in Lechneret et al. (J Eur Econ Assoc 9:742–784, 2011) is competitive among a broad range of propensity score-based estimators used to correct for mean differences due to observable covariates. In...
