Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

tri.sample selects a sample of precincts PPEB. Namely, samples n times, with replacement, from the precincts proportional to the weights of the precincts.

Usage

tri.sample(Z, n, seed = NULL, print.trail = FALSE, simplify = TRUE,
          return.precincts = TRUE, PID = "PID", known = "known")
tri.sample.stats(samp)

Arguments

Z

elec.data object

n

Either a audit.plan.tri object (that contains n) or an integer which is the size of the sample

seed

Seed to use.

print.trail

Print diagnostics and info on the selection process.

simplify

If TRUE, return a data frame of unique precincts sampled, with counts of how many times they were sampled. Otherwise return repeatedly sampled precincts seperately.

return.precincts

Return the precincts, or just the precint IDs

PID

The name of the column in Z\$V holding unique precinct IDs

known

Name of column in Z\$V of TRUE/FALSE, where TRUE are precincts that are considered “known”, and thus should not be sampled for whatever reason.

samp

A sample, such as one returned from tri.sample

Details

The weights, if passed, are in the “e.max” column of Z\$V.

Value

tri.sample returns a sample of precincts. tri.sample.stats is a utility function returning the total number of unique precincts and ballots given a sample.
