1. There is a great article on propensity (easy to read) written by Ralph
D'agostino published in statistics in medicine (1998).
2. I have to tell you that myself is not an expert either. I had used
stratification model once in the past. If you would go with stratification,
technically, once you estimate propensity score by logistic regression (or
discriminant analysis), you have to decide about stratum boundaries (combined
group propensity score or treated or control group alone).
I think the article above is well articulated and very helpful to understand the
mechanics of propensity.
