Matching: Multivariate and Propensity Score Matching with Balance Optimization

Provides functions for multivariate and propensity score matching and for finding optimal balance based on a genetic search algorithm. A variety of univariate and multivariate metrics to determine if balance has been obtained are also provided. For details, see the paper by Jasjeet Sekhon (2007, <doi:10.18637/jss.v042.i07>).
