Bayes Linear Estimators for Finite Population

Allows the user to apply the Bayes Linear approach to finite population with the Simple Random Sampling - BLE_SRS() - and the Stratified Simple Random Sampling design - BLE_SSRS() - (both without replacement) and to the Ratio estimator (using auxiliary information) - BLE_Ratio(). The Bayes linear estimation approach is applied to a general linear regression model for finite population prediction in BLE_Reg() and it is also possible to achieve the design based estimators using vague prior distributions. Based on Gonçalves, K.C.M, Moura, F.A.S and Migon, H.S.(2014) <>.
