st: mahapick; package to pick matched control cases --again
A few weeks back I announced mahapick, but at the time, it was not properly installed in the SSC.
This has been fixed now. So if anyone tried to install it then and failed, you should try again now.
This set of programs allows you to select matching control cases for a set of "treated" cases -- for subsequent analysis. Matching is done with replacement, using a Mahalanobis distance measure. There are also programs to compute the distance measure and manage the resulting dataset. There is also a program to place a set of variances into a matrix (an operation that was useful within these programs, but may interest others as well).
Thanks to Kit Baum, for placing it into the SSC archives.
