To whom it may concern,  

I have a question referring to the calculation of variance estimation of the survey package  

I need to estimate the variance for different Domains but for a stratified sampling desing in several stages. Särndal et al (1992), CAP 10, makes reference to this problem.  

My question is if it is possible by means of "survey package" to obtain these calculations, and if it follows the methodology raised by Särndal or another author.  

I have noticed that the shown expression presents two components, one that is quiet the variance between strata for the Domain and the second is the mean square sum between strata.  

I beforehand thank for any commentary that can be done on the matter.
