TRAINING KEY 145: Linearization method



INTRODUCTION

Example 5.1. In this Training Key we concentrate on the use of the linearization method in the MFH Survey. We examine the linearization method in the estimation of the variance of a subpopulation proportion estimator for the binary response variable CHRON (chronic morbidity) and a subpopulation mean estimator for the continuous response variable SYSBP (systolic blood pressure). The subgroup considered is males aged 30-64 years.



A) LINEARIZATION METHOD

We will demonstrate how the estimation of the variance of a combined ratio type proportion or mean estimator can be carried out with the linearization method. Instructions will be given once you start.
 

 


B) INTERACTIVE SAS USE

Please download the SAS code for your own further linearization method training. One of tasks is to try to complete the code in order to calculate the design effects (deffs) of the CHRON proportion estimator and the SYSBP mean estimator. Instructions will be given in the SAS code once you have downloaded it.

NOTE! You need to have access to SAS in your computer.
