''Weighted empirical likelihood-based inference for quantiles under stratified random sampling''
( 2013, Vol. 33 No.3 )
A growing body of literature is emerging on empirical likelihood methods for complex surveys. These works largely focus on the population mean. We propose a weighted empirical likelihood approach as a method of inference for quantiles under stratified random sampling, which is one of the most popular complex survey designs. A simulation study substantiates our proposed methodology.
Keywords: empirical likelihood, stratified sampling, quantiles
