lcubestratified {BalancedSampling}R Documentation

Stratified doubly balanced sampling with pooling of landing phases

Description

This is a fast implementation of stratified doubly balanced sampling. To have a fixed sample size, include the inclusion probabilities as a balancing variable in Xbal and make sure the inclusion probabilities sum to a positive integer (within each stratum). Euclidean distance is used in the Xspread space.

Usage

lcubestratified(prob,Xspread,Xbal,integerStrata)	

Arguments

prob

vector of length N with inclusion probabilities

Xspread

matrix of (standardized) auxiliary variables of N rows and q columns

Xbal

matrix of balancing auxiliary variables of N rows and r columns

integerStrata

vector of length N with stratum number

Value

Returns a vector of length N with sampling indicators.
