We introduce a new ``Monotonic Imbalance Bounding'' (MIB) class of matching methods for causal inference that satisfies several important in-sample properties.

We also offer strategies to obtain specific members of the MIB class, and present a member of this class, called Coarsened Exact Matching, whose… CONTINUE READING
