There are two key issues: covariate balance and the structure of matched sets. The simulation study by Gu and Rosenbaum (1993) considered a wide variety of issues and proposals, and concluded that balance and structure had both the largest and most consistent effect on the quality of matched samples. 18 MATCHING IN OBSERVATIONAL STUDIES—ROSENBAUM Covariate balance using propensity scores When x is of moderate to high dimension k—that is, when there are many covariates— it will be difficult if not impossible to match most treated subjects to controls with the same value of x.
