Sampling and Weighting

Conduct a two-stage sampling project. You will select a two-stage stratified sample from a population that is based on data from the 2015 National Health Interview Survey done in the United States. You will complete three steps: (1) Select a sample of two block groups in each stratum with probabilities proportional to the number of persons in each block group. This requires counting the number of persons in each block group by stratum to plan five separate selections of two block groups in each stratum. (2) Then select a simple random sample without replacement (srswor) of 10% of the persons within each sample block group. (3) Calculate weights for each sample case and compute weighted estimates from the sample....
