HMT | R Documentation |

Generate a population that follows the model in Hansen, Madow, and Tepping (1983)

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 |

`y` |
analysis variable |
