Dear Staz, Thank you for your help. But still, I need to use the prone_flood variable in allocating the sansads in a particular manner. Let me try to explain more clearly as I made a mistake in my explanation in the previous mail. Now we have the sample size to be drawn from each category (1-4. given by the generated samplesize variable) Now the issue of alocation based on prone_flood variable comes in. The prone_flood variable is coded 1-4 and more weight should be given to 4 then 3 and then 2 and then 1. We need to choose in such a way that from each GP, those with higher codes are selected first. that is So, from each GP, the sansads should be selected as follows based on the prone_flood variable. If samplesize is 4, select 2 sansands from those which are coded 4 (prone_flood variable) and one each from those sansads which are coded 3 and 2. If the samplesize is 3, select 2 from those which are coded 4 and 1 from those which are coded 3 . If the samplesize is 2, select 2 from those which are coded 4 If the samplesize is 1, select 1 from those which are coded 4. However, the problem arises when one particular category of sansads say those coded 4 (prone_flood variable) are absent.Ideally we should go to the next category coded 3, choose 2 sansads from them and then choose one each from those coded 2 and 1 respectively. Any help on this problem will be really appreciated. Thanks. George For each GP, the procedure is as follows: If the samplesize is 1, we should select 1 sansad from the GP from those sansads which are coded 4 based on prone_flood variable. If none is coded 4, we should select one sansad which is coded 3 from among those which are coded 3. If none is coded 3, we should select one sansad which is coded 2 from among those which are coded 2. And finally, If none is coded 2, we should select one sansad which is coded 1 from among those which are coded 1. To continue,: If the samplesize is 4, we should select 2 sansads from the GP from those sansads which are coded 4 based on prone_flood variable. If none is coded 4, we should select two sansads which is coded 3 from among those which are coded 3. If none is coded 3, we should select two sansads which is coded 2 from among those which are coded 2. And finally, If none is coded 2, we should select all four sansads which is coded 1 from among those which are coded 1.
