Fluorite | Level 6

I've been running proc psmatch for an analysis, using 1:1 nearest neighbor matching on propensity scores calculated from proc logistic.


I did not include the WEIGHT=ATT option in the ASSESS statement to my code.


Are the matching results still valid? Which weighting scheme is proc psmatch using as a default? I do see in the output dataset of matched records _MATCHWGT_=1 for every record.


proc psmatch data=logistic_output;
  	class class age gender;
  	psdata ps=ps  treatvar=class(treated='Treatment');
	match method=greedy(k=1) exact=(age gender) caliper=0.25;
   	output out(obs=match)=psm_results;

Ah hold on - if I add an ASSESS / WEIGHT=ATTWGT; statement to my proc psmatch code I see the following message after running.


WARNING: WEIGHT=ATEWGT and WEIGHT=ATTWGT are not allowed if a MATCH statement is specified. WEIGHT=MATCHWGT is used.

Ok so looks like weights can't be used for 1:1 nearest neighbor matching?


Am I still estimating ATT when I run a proc ttest on the matched output data even if WEIGHT=ATT wasn't used?
