BIFIE.data.jack {BIFIEsurvey}R Documentation

Create BIFIE.data Object with Jackknife Zones

Description

Creates a BIFIE.data object for designs with jackknife zones, especially for TIMSS/PIRLS and PISA studies.

Usage

BIFIE.data.jack(data, wgt=NULL, jktype="JK_TIMSS", pv_vars=NULL,
     jkzone=NULL, jkrep=NULL, jkfac=NULL, fayfac=NULL,
     wgtrep="W_FSTR", pvpre=paste0("PV",1:5), ngr=100,
     seed=.Random.seed, cdata=FALSE)

Arguments

data

Data frame: Can be a single or a list of multiply-imputed datasets

wgt

A string indicating the label of case weight. In case of jktype="JK_TIMSS" the weight is specified as wgt="TOTWGT" as the default.

pv_vars

An optional vector of plausible values which define multiply-imputed datasets.

jktype

Type of jackknife procedure for creating the BIFIE.data object. jktype="JK_TIMSS" refers to TIMSS/PIRLS datasets up to 2011 data, jktype="JK_TIMSS2" refers to TIMSS/PIRLS datasets starting from 2015 data. The type "JK_GROUP" creates jackknife weights based on a user defined grouping, the type "JK_RANDOM" creates random groups. The number of random groups can be defined in ngr. The argument type="RW_PISA" converts PISA datasets into objects of class BIFIEdata.

jkzone

Jackknife zones. If jktype="JK_TIMSS", then jkzone="JKZONE".

jkrep

Jackknife replicate factors. If jktype="JK_TIMSS", then jkrep="JKREP".

jkfac

Factor for multiplying jackknife replicate weights. If jktype="JK_TIMSS", then jkfac=2.

fayfac

Fay factor for statistical inference. The default is set to NULL.

wgtrep

Variables in the dataset which refer to the replicate weights. In case of cdata=TRUE, the replicate weights are deleted from datalistM.

pvpre

Only applicable for jktype="RW_PISA". The vector contains the prefixes of the variables containing plausible values.

ngr

Number of randomly created groups in "JK_RANDOM".

seed

The simulation seed if "JK_RANDOM" is chosen. If seed=NULL, then the grouping is done according the order in the dataset.

cdata

An optional logical indicating whether the BIFIEdata object should be compactly saved. The default is FALSE.

Value

Object of class BIFIEdata
