Abstract:

Many evaluations of neighborhood-level interventions have relied on neighborhood-matching strategies, but to the authors’ knowledge the validity of this methodology has not been tested. This paper responds to the demand for rigorous evidence on the use of quasi-experimental neighborhood matches for assessing the effectiveness of community-wide interventions.
