bal.stat | R Documentation |

'bal.stat' compares the treatment and control subjects by means, standard deviations, effect size, and KS statistics

```
bal.stat(
data,
vars = NULL,
treat.var,
w.all,
sampw,
get.means = TRUE,
get.ks = TRUE,
na.action = "level",
estimand,
multinom,
fillNAs = FALSE
)
```

`data` |
A data frame containing the data |

`vars` |
A vector of character strings with the names of the variables on which the function will assess the balance |

`treat.var` |
The name of the treatment variable |

`w.all` |
Oobservation weights (e.g. propensity score weights, sampling weights, or both) |

`sampw` |
Sampling weights. These are passed in addition to 'w.all' because the "unweighted" results shoud be adjusted for sample weights (though not propensity score weights). |

`get.means` |
logical. If 'TRUE' then 'bal.stat' will compute means and variances |

`get.ks` |
logical. If 'TRUE' then 'bal.stat' will compute KS statistics |

`na.action` |
A character string indicating how 'bal.stat' should handle missing values. Current options are "level", "exclude", or "lowest" |

`estimand` |
Either "ATT" or "ATE" |

`multinom` |
logical. 'TRUE' if used for multinomial propensity scores. |

`fillNAs` |
logical. If 'TRUE', fills in zeros for missing values. |

'bal.stat' calls auxiliary functions for each variable and assembles the results in a table.

'get.means' and 'get.ks' manipulate the inclusion of certain columns in the returned result.

The example for [ps] contains an example of the use of [bal.table]
