Upcoming publication:

"A Tale of Two Matrix Factorizations"

"Advancing Statistical Thinking in Observational Health Care Research" by R. L. Obenchain, Risk Benefit Statistics LLC, Carmel, IN 46033, U.S.A., and S. S. Young, National Institute of Statistical Sciences, RTP, NC 27709, U.S.A.

The paper will appear in the Journal of Statistical Theory and Practice in 2013.

This paper illustrates use of the Local Control (LC) approach to estimate Local Treatment Differences (LTDs) in large, observational datasets, and the "mddsim.zip" archive contains the simulated data for 40,000 patients diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) used as the numerical example in this paper.
