Generate a population that follows the model in Hansen, Madow, and Tepping (1983)
1  HMT(N=5000, H=10)

N 
population size 
H 
number of strata 
HMT
generates a population based on the model: E(y)= α + β x, Var(y)=σ^2x^{3/2}. Both x and y have gamma distributions. Strata are formed to have approximately the same total of x.
N x 3 matrix with columns:
strat 
stratum ID 
x 
auxiliary variable x 
y 
analysis variable y
