contrastinf {convey}R Documentation

Generalized linearization of a smooth function of survey statistics

Description

Generalized linearization of a smooth function of survey statistics

Usage

contrastinf(exprlist, infunlist)

Arguments

exprlist

a call

infunlist

a list of lists, each having two components: value - the estimate value and lin - the linearized variable

Details

The call must use function that deriv knows how to differentiate. It allows to compute the linearized variable of a complex indicator from the linearized variables of simpler component variables, avoiding the formal derivatives calculations.

Value

a list with two components: values - the estimate value and lin - the linearized variable
