BIFIEdata2svrepdesign {BIFIEsurvey}R Documentation

Conversion of a BIFIEdata Object into a svyrep Object in the survey Package (and the other way around)

Description

The function BIFIEdata2svrepdesign converts of a BIFIEdata object into a svyrep object in the survey package.

The function svrepdesign2BIFIEdata converts a svyrep object in the survey package into an object of class BIFIEdata.

Usage

BIFIEdata2svrepdesign(bifieobj, varnames=NULL, impdata.index=NULL)

svrepdesign2BIFIEdata(svrepdesign, varnames=NULL, cdata=FALSE)

Arguments

bifieobj

Object of class BIFIEdata

varnames

Optional vector with variable names

impdata.index

Selected indices of imputed datasets

svrepdesign

Object of class svyrep.design or svyimputationList

cdata

Logical inducating whether BIFIEdata object should be saved in compact format

Value

Function BIFIEdata2svrepdesign: Object of class svyrep.design or svyimputationList

Function svrepdesign2BIFIEdata: Object of class BIFIEdata
