landingphase {BalancedSampling} R Documentation

## Landing phase of the cube method

### Description

Landing is done by dropping balancing variables (from rightmost column).

### Usage

```landingphase(prob,probflight,Xbal)
```

### Arguments

 `prob` vector of length N with inclusion probabilities `probflight` vector of length N obtained from the flightphase `Xbal` matrix of balancing auxiliary variables of N rows and q columns

### Value

Returns a vector of length N with inclusion indicators.

### Examples

```## Not run:
# Example 1
# Select sample
set.seed(12345);
N = 100; # population size
n = 10; # sample size
p = rep(n/N,N); # inclusion probabilities
X = cbind(p,runif(N),runif(N)); # matrix of auxiliary variables
pflight = flightphase(p,X); # flight
indicators = landingphase(p,pflight,X); # landing
# final sample
s = (1:N)[indicators==1];

## End(Not run)
