#' Get estimates, inquiries, assignment vectors, or samples from a design given data
#'  
#' @param design A design object, typically created using the + operator
#' @param data A data.frame object with sufficient information to get the data, estimates, inquiries, an assignment vector, or a sample.
#' @param start (Defaults to 1) a scalar indicating which step in the design to begin with. By default all data steps are drawn, from step 1 to the last step of the design.
#' @param end (Defaults to \code{length(design)}) a scalar indicating which step in the design to finish with.
