Uses parametric and nonparametric methods to quantify the proportion of the estimated selection bias (SB) explained by each observed confounder when estimating propensity score weighted treatment effects.

This packge provides a function that decomposes the estimated selection bias to quantify what proportion of the estimated
selection bias is explained by each observed confounder used in the propensity score model; the function is sbdecomp.
The function offers two approaches - confounder inclusion or removal, and offers two estimation approaches - parametric
or nonparametric. These methods allow one to identify the most important confounder when estimating a propensity score
weighted treatment effect in the presence of selection bias.
