scps {BalancedSampling} | R Documentation |
Select spatially balanced samples with prescribed inclusion probabilities from a finite population. This implementation uses the maximal weight strategy and Euclidean distance.
scps(prob,x)
prob |
vector of length N with inclusion probabilities |
x |
matrix of (standardized) auxiliary variables of N rows and q columns |
Returns a vector of selected indexes in 1,2,...,N. If the inclusion probabilities sum to n, where n is integer, then the sample size is fixed (n).
