Solved – Propensity score matching with multiple treatments

Is anyone aware of propensity score matching methods for when there are more than 2 treatment groups? I am working on a project with 4 treatment groups:

  1. A
  2. B
  3. A and B
  4. Neither A nor B

Calculating propensity scores using multinomial logistic regression might work, but then I'd get multiple scores for each observation so I'm not sure how I'd match/analyze the matched data.

It is not hard to do simultaneous covariate adjustment for multiple propensity scores. I recommend always using the logit propensity scale, and expanding those into restricted cubic splines. An example paper is Mark et al (1994) Circulation 89:2015-2025 where we analyzed three treatments.
