as.svrepdesign {survey}R Documentation

Convert a survey design to use replicate weights

Description

Creates a replicate-weights survey design object from a traditional strata/cluster survey design object. JK1 and JKn are jackknife methods, BRR is Balanced Repeated Replicates and Fay is Fay's modification of this, bootstrap is Canty and Davison's bootstrap, subbootstrap is Rao and Wu's (n-1) bootstrap, and mrbbootstrap is Preston's multistage rescaled bootstrap. With a svyimputationList object, the same replicate weights will be used for each imputation if the sampling weights are all the same and separate.replicates=FALSE.

Usage

as.svrepdesign(design,...)
## Default S3 method:
as.svrepdesign(design, type=c("auto", "JK1", "JKn", "BRR", "bootstrap",
   "subbootstrap","mrbbootstrap","Fay"),
   fay.rho = 0, fpc=NULL,fpctype=NULL,..., compress=TRUE, 
   mse=getOption("survey.replicates.mse"))
## S3 method for class 'svyimputationList'
as.svrepdesign(design, type=c("auto", "JK1", "JKn", "BRR", "bootstrap",
   "subbootstrap","mrbbootstrap","Fay"),
   fay.rho = 0, fpc=NULL,fpctype=NULL, separate.replicates=FALSE, ..., compress=TRUE, 
   mse=getOption("survey.replicates.mse"))

Arguments

design

Object of class survey.design or svyimputationList

type

Type of replicate weights. "auto" uses JKn for stratified, JK1 for unstratified designs

fay.rho

Tuning parameter for Fay's variance method

fpc,fpctype,...

Passed to jk1weights, jknweights, brrweights, bootweights, subbootweights, or mrbweights.

separate.replicates

Compute replicate weights separately for each design (useful for the bootstrap types, which are not deterministic

compress

Use a compressed representation of the replicate weights matrix.

mse

if TRUE, compute variances from sums of squares around the point estimate, rather than the mean of the replicates

Value

Object of class svyrep.design.
