“I find the accessibility of propensity scores to be the most appealing contribution of this text. As the authors pointed out, many articles on propensity scores use statistical equations and programs that many users are unfamiliar with. Most students that take workshops from me want how-to instructions for computing and using propensity scores. I like that this book would present them from a methodological and applied approach, rather than the more-common theoretical approach.”
“The worked up examples in different software programs are a definite strength.”
“The discussion of alternatives in order to control sources of influence is very good.”
“I was most intrigued by some of the material covered near the end of the outline, in particular the chapters on missing data and repairing broken experiments. It is one thing to cover the statistical theory, but in my experience students really need guidance in how to handle messy research design and data situations. In the same vein, I liked seeing how many of the chapters appear to end with sections on assessing the adequacy and sufficiency of the techniques covered in those chapters.”
