Description Usage Arguments Value Note Note Examples

Generates a sample survey population with ages uniformly distributed in the specified range, (@p age.low, @p age.high), and all assigned the provided observation @p date.

1 | ```
make.sample.pop(N, age.low, age.high, date)
``` |

`N` |
the number of samples, i.e. population size |

`age.low` |
the minimum age (in months) for the sample population |

`age.high` |
the maximum age (in months) for the sample population |

`date` |
the observation date to use for all samples |

a @c data.frame with @p N rows and two columns: @c date and @c age

@see runif

The lower and upper age limits will not be generated. This function uses @coderunif to generate age values and @c runif does not generate either extreme unless @code low = high or @code max - min is small.

If @p age.high < @p age.low, all generated ages will be @c NaN.

make.sample.pop( N=10, age.low=0, age.high=25, date="2012-01-01" )
N <- 10
dates <- c( "2005-05-01" ,"2007-07-02", "2009-09-03" )
make.sample.pop( N, 0, 25, array(dates,dim=N) )
