Pik: Inclusion Probabilities for Fixed Size Without Replacement... In damarals/TeachingSampling: Selection of Samples and Parameter Estimation in Finite Population

Description

Computes the first-order inclusion probability of each unit in the population given a fixed sample size design

Usage

 `1` ```Pik(p, Ind) ```

Arguments

 `p` A vector containing the selection probabilities of a fixed size without replacement sampling design. The sum of the values of this vector must be one `Ind` A sample membership indicator matrix

Details

The inclusion probability of the kth unit is defined as the probability that this unit will be included in a sample, it is denoted by π_k and obtained from a given sampling design as follows:

π_k=∑_{s\ni k}p(s)

Value

The function returns a vector of inclusion probabilities for each unit in the finite population.
