C1 |
unit cost per primary sampling unit (PSU) |
C2 |
unit cost per element |
delta |
homogeneity measure δ |
unit.rv |
unit relvariance |
k |
ratio of B^2 + W^2 to unit relvariance |
CV0 |

specify type of optimum:
1 = find optimal |
clusOpt2
will compute m_{opt} and \bar{n}_{opt} for a two-stage sample
which uses simple random sampling at each stage or ppswr at the first stage and srs at the second.
