Betreff: Re: st: RE: Creating a Non-Self Mean & Proportions
Dear, Nick, thanks for attempting to resolve my question, though the
code fragment did not help. Please, below are 20 cases, covering 3
different strata, as well as their respective values on the index
variable of interest (i.e., score), for your examination. What I want
is the count or proportion of each value of the index variable (i.e.,
score) in each strata.
Cluster Hhold# Line# Strata score
46 7 1 1 0
122 20 4 1 0
122 6 2 1 1
46 1 1 1 2
122 11 2 1 1
122 6 1 1 0
122 16 6 2 0
46 13 1 2 1
46 12 1 2 2
122 17 1 2 0
122 8 2 2 1
46 13 3 2 1
122 5 2 2 0
46 6 3 3 1
122 16 2 3 0
122 15 1 3 2
46 4 2 3 0
46 19 3 3 1
122 4 2 3 0
46 20 4 3 2
So from this scratch data we can have the following distribution of
the 3 score values by strata:
ScoreValues Strata1 Strata2 Strata3 Total
0 3 3 3 9
1 2 3 2 7
2 1 1 2 4
N 20
Thus, we can state that across all strata 9 individuals had a score of
0, 7 had a score of 1 and 4 had a score of 2 -- that is we aggregate
or count each of the values of the index variable (Score) across or
over all strata. In this way I can describe the distribution of the
scores over the strata.
I hope this makes it a bit clearer. If, not please let me know and I
can try and provide further clarification.
rgds, Em
