Summarizing output from MatchW and MatchPW

Description

summary method for MatchW and MatchPW

Usage

## S3 method for class 'CMatch'
summary(object, ..., full = FALSE, digits = 5)

Arguments

object

An object of class "CMatch".

...

Other options for the generic summary function.

full

A flag for whether the unadjusted estimates and naive standard errors should also be summarized.

digits

The number of significant digits that should be displayed.

Details

A summary of most important output from a "CMatch" object, including size of matched dataset and estimates (if Y is not NULL). If Group contains only one value the output is the same of the summary method of package Matching. Otherwise the output shows also the distribution of treated (control) observations by group and the distribution of dropped (because of 'caliper' or 'exact' option), also by group.

Note

Naive standard errors are not available when there is more than one group so the full parameter is ineffective in that case.
