Survey data are often collected with unequal probabilities from a stratified population. We propose an empirical likelihood approach for sample data selected with unequal probabilities. We show that the empirical likelihood ratio statistic follows a chi-squared distribution asymptotically. The approach proposed does not rely on variance estimates, re-sampling or joint-inclusion probabilities, even when the parameter of interest is not linear. Standard confidence intervals based on variance… CONTINUE READING
