This tutorial explains the syntax and features related to the implementation of the MNPS commands in the Stata TWANG series. The MNPS function, which stands for multinomial propensity scores, estimates propensity score weights for studies involving more than two treatment or exposure groups. The Stata TWANG commands were developed to support the use of the TWANG tools without requiring analysts to learn R.
