Nonparametric density estimation for stratified samples
We consider a weighted, nonparametric density estimator for stratified samples. We derive the optimal bandwidth using information on within-stratum variances and means. We provide a plug-in bandwidth when all strata are normally distributed. We show that the optimal sampling scheme is stratified sampling proportional to size, irrespective of the stratum-specific densities.
