Spatial balance

Description

Calculates spatial balance of a sample subject to inclusion probabilities and auxiliary space

Usage

sb(p,x,s)	

Arguments

p

vector of length N with inclusion probabilities

x

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

s

the sample, vector of length n

Value

Number, the spatial balance

Examples

## Not run: 
# check spatial balance
set.seed(1234567);
N = 500;
n = 70;
p = rep(n/N,N);
X = cbind(runif(N),runif(N));

# select lpm1 sample
s = lpm1(p,X);
# calculate balance
B = sb(p,X,s);
