Recursive Partitioning for Modeling Survey Data

Functions to allow users to build and analyze design consistent tree and random forest models using survey data from a complex sample design. The algorithm can fit a linear model to survey data in each node obtained by recursively partitioning the data. The splitting variables and selected splits are obtained using a randomized permutation test procedure which adjusted for complex sample design features used to obtain the data. Likewise the model fitting algorithm produces design-consistent coefficients to any specified least squares linear model between the dependent and independent variables used in the end nodes. The main functions return the resulting binary tree or random forest as an object of "rpms" or "rpms_forest" type. The package also provides a number of functions and methods available for use with these object types.
