CLAN: SAS-program for computation of point- and standard error estimates in sample survey. CLAN is a program developed at Statistics Sweden and designed to compute point- and standard error estimates in sample surveys. All parameters that can be written as arbitrary rational functions of population (domain) totals can be handled. For example simple ratios, ratios between ratios, differences between different domain totals, etc. CLAN computes an estimate of the parameter and its standard error using a Taylor linearization approach. The Horvitz-Thompson estimator and/or the generalized regression (GREG) estimator can be used for simple totals. CLAN can handle all parameters that can be writ- ten as rational functions of totals where the user only has to specify the functional form of the parameters in terms of population or domain totals. The theory and its implementation are described.
