Description Usage Arguments Value

The matching functions `fullmatch`

and `pairmatch`

have a maximum problem size, based on the number of comparisons between treated
and control units. For a completely dense problem, in which every treated units
is compared to every control unit there are ```
length(treated) *
length(control)
```

comparisons. A caliper restricts which comparisons are valid,
disallowing matches of treated and control pairs that are too far apart. A
caliper can significantly decrease the size of a matching problem. The
`caliperSize`

function reports exactly who many valid treated-control
comparisons remain after applying a caliper of the given width.

1 | ```
caliperSize(scores, z, width, structure = NULL)
``` |

`scores` |
A numeric vector of scores providing 1-D position of units |

`z` |
Treatment indicator vector |

`width` |
Width of caliper, must be positive |

`structure` |
Grouping factor to use in computation |

numeric Total number of pairwise distances remaining after the caliper is placed.
