# Create Balance Table

### Description

Given an unmatched sample of treated and control units and (optionally) a matched sample from the same data, produces a table with pre- and post-match measures of covariate balance.

### Usage

1 2 |

### Arguments

`df.orig` |
a data frame containing the data before matching |

`df.match` |
an optional data frame containing the matched sample |

`treatment` |
name of the binary indicator for treatment status |

`treat.wts` |
optional weights for treated units in the original sample |

`ctrl.wts` |
optional weights for control units in the original sample |

`mt.wts` |
optional weights for treated units in the matched sample |

`mc.wts` |
optional weights for treated units in the matched sample |

`verbose` |
a logical value indicating whether detailed output should be printed. |

### Value

A matrix of balance measures, with one row for each covariate in `df.orig`

except `treatment`

, and columns for treated and control means, standardized differences in means, p-values from a 2-sample t-test, and p-values from either Fisher's exact test (if the covariate is binary) or a Wilcoxon signed rank test otherwise. If `df.match`

is specified there are twice as many columns, one set for the pre-match samples and one set for the post-match samples.
