Description Usage Arguments Examples

These functions calculate the arithmetic and geometric mean of the weight for each class. `geometric_mean`

and
`arithmetic_mean`

return a `numeric`

vector of the same length as `w`

which stores the averaged weight for each
observation. `geometric_mean_reference`

returns the same value by reference, i.e. the input value `w`

gets
overwritten by the updated weights. See examples.

1 | ```
geometric_mean_reference(w, classes)
``` |

`w` |
An numeric vector. All entries should be positive. |

`classes` |
A factor variable. Must have the same length as |

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 | ```
## Not run:
## create random data
nobs <- 10
classLabels <- letters[1:3]
dat = data.frame(
weight = exp(rnorm(nobs)),
household = factor(sample(classLabels, nobs, replace = TRUE))
)
dat
## calculate weights with geometric_mean
geom_weight <- geometric_mean(dat$weight, dat$household)
cbind(dat, geom_weight)
## calculate weights with arithmetic_mean
arith_weight <- arithmetic_mean(dat$weight, dat$household)
cbind(dat, arith_weight)
## calculate weights "by reference"
geometric_mean_reference(dat$weight, dat$household)
dat
