RGROUP: Stata module for Random Group Variance Estimation
rgroup calculates the random group variance estimator described by Wolter (1985). This estimator is an alternative to other estimators of the variance of sample statistics for survey data e.g. the jackknife or taylor linearization. The application of the random group estimator requires, that random groups are already defined during data collection. This for example is the case in the GSOEP, the German Socio-economic Panel.
