Applications of the Bayesian Bootstrap in Finite Population Inference
Abstract:This article extends the Bayesian bootstrap analysis, applied to studies of single finite population survey data in Hartley and Rao (1968), Ericson (1969), and Rubin (1981), to regression models for numerically-valued response variables in stratified and clustered samples.
This extension provides an alternative Bayesian analysis of complex finite population survey data which for some applications requires only standard statistical modeling software to implement.
Keywords:Survey sampling; stratification; clustering; Dirichlet prior.
