Title: Using Nonparametric Regression to Derive Predictors in Analytic Inference from Complex Surveys

Keywords: analytic inference ; complex survey ; nonparametric regression ; informative selection

In analytic inference for a regression relationship in a complex survey, informative selection may lead to inconsistent estimation. A standard approach is to expand the covariates to account for design features, but these design covariates may be of no scientific interest. An approach to removing these design covariates using nonparametric regression is explored. The resulting predictor has variance that can be estimated using a combination of standard design-based variance estimation and model-based variance estimation.
