blockingChallenge: Create Blocks or Strata which are Similar Within

Implements a heuristic algorithm to build blocks of a given size aiming to maximize similarity within strata across multiple covariates. The blocking structure can be used for causal inference and for sensitivity analysis to unmeasured confounding. A stratified structure gives more flexibility for using multiple instrumental variables and direct treatment vs. control analysis as evidence factors. Karmakar, B., Small, D. S., and Rosenbaum, P. R.
