This function allows transforming a matching vector to a binary matching matrix. A matching vector is of length N where each element indicates the submatch to which the observation belongs to. Notice that this is not the same as the group allocation vector that is provided by the match.allocate-function. The binary matching matrix is of size N x N where 0 indicates that the observations have been part of a different submatch, and 1 indicates that the observations have been part of the same submatch. Diagonal is always 0 although an observation is always in the same submatch with its self.
A matching vector 'x'
N times N binary matching matrix, where 0 indicates that the observations have been part of a different submatch, and 1 indicates that the observations have been part of the same submatch.
