A continuous form of post-stratification

  • David R. Brillinger


The problem of estimating a given integral of a regression function is considered. The proposed estimate may be viewed as continuous analog of the post-stratified mean of sample survey theory. The asymptotic distribution of the estimate is derived, under regularity conditions, and an estimate of its variance suggested.
