Goodevening, thanks for the acceptance in the forum.
I need to create a a case control matched study; i've 2 groups of patiets extremely with high heterogeneity between the groups, and i need to create a study with two homogeneus groups of almost 50patients for group, for item like AGE SEX and BMI. Searching i've found FUZZY extesion.
1- why i can't install this extension?
2 - how it work i don't understand

So then you can't simply merge the 2 data sets (after you create a group variable in each one)?
