Abstract

Difference-in-differences with matching is a popular method to measure the impact of an intervention in health as well as social sciences. This method requires baseline data, i.e., data before interventions, which are not always available in reality. Instead, panel data with two time periods are often collected after interventions begin. In this paper, a simple matching method is proposed to measure impact of an intervention using two-period panel data after the intervention.
