When there are only a few relevant variables, this provides a simple means of estimating the treatment effect: by matching or grouping observations on the basis of pretreatment covariates, estimating the treatment effect within each group, and then averaging over these treatment effects to obtain the overall treatment effect.

4 Propensity score estimates Comparing the treatment and comparison samples One of the simplest, and most powerful, uses of the propensity score is as a diagnostic on the quality of a nonexperimental comparison group. 1 convincingly established significant overall differences between the treatment and comparison groups, the propensity score allows us to focus directly on the comparison units that are not well matched with the treatment group. 2 provide a simple diagnostic on the data examined, plotting the histograms of the estimated propensity scores for the NSW-CPS and NSWPSID samples.

For the PSID sample, the stratification estimate is $1,608 and the matching estimate is $1,691, compared to the benchmark randomized-experiment estimate of $1,794. The estimates from a difference in means or regression on the full sample are −$15,205 and $731. In columns (5) and (8), controlling for covariates has little impact on the stratification and matching estimates. Likewise for the CPS, the propensity-score-based estimates from the CPS—$1,713 and $1,582—are much closer to the experimental benchmark than estimates from the full comparison sample: −$8,498 and $972.
