Harmonizes the marginal (joint) distribution of a set of variables observed independently in two sample surveys referred to the same target population
description
This function permits to harmonize the marginal or the joint distribution of a set of variables observed independently in two sample surveys carried out on the same target population. This harmonization is carried out by using the calibration of the survey weights of the sample units in both the surveys according to the procedure suggested by Renssen (1998).
Function comb.samples [StatMatch v1.3.0]
keywords
survey
title
Statistical Matching of data from complex sample surveys
description
This function permits to cross-tabulate two categorical variables, Y and Z, observed separately in two independent surveys (Y is collected in survey A and Z is collected in survey B) carried out on the same target population. The two surveys share a number of common variables X. When it is available a third survey C, carried on the same population, in which both Y and Z are collected, these data are used as a source of auxiliary information. The statistical matching is performed by carrying out calibration of the survey weights, as suggested in Renssen (1998). It is possible also to use the function to derive the estimates that a unit falls in one of the categories of the target variable (estimation are based on Liner Probability Models and are obtained as a by-product of the Renssen's method).
