cluster_sampling_designer {DesignLibrary} | R Documentation |
Builds a cluster sampling design for an ordinal outcome variable for a population with N_blocks
strata, each with N_clusters_in_block
clusters, each of which contains N_i_in_cluster
units. The sampling strategy involves sampling n_clusters_in_block
clusters in each stratum, and then sampling n_i_in_cluster
units in each cluster. Outcomes within clusters have intra-cluster correlation approximately equal to ICC
.

N_blocks |
An integer. Number of blocks (strata). Defaults to 1 for no blocks. |
N_clusters_in_block |
An integer or vector of integers of length |
N_i_in_cluster |
An integer or vector of integers of length |
n_clusters_in_block |
An integer. Number of clusters to sample in each block (stratum). |
n_i_in_cluster |
An integer. Number of units to sample in each cluster. |
icc |
A number in [0,1]. Intra-cluster Correlation Coefficient (ICC). |
args_to_fix |
A character vector. Names of arguments to be args_to_fix in design. |
Key limitations: The design assumes a args_to_fix number of clusters drawn in each stratum and a args_to_fix number of individuals drawn from each cluster.
