Althauser, Robert P.; Rubin, Donald
Amer J Sociol, 76, 2, 325-346, Sep '70
The use of matched sampling in experimental and nonexperimental research ahs been frustrated by the problems of attrition and incomplete matching. The amount of attrition of sample size and incomplete matching are shown to be a function of various aspects of the research, including the level of measurement of the matching variables, the sampling situation, the definition of a match, and the means used to construct matches.
