Hi folks,

I'm analysing and stratified distance survey, and I'm interested in including a strata-specific multiplier. However, I don't know how to handle 'dht2' function for that. Concretely, I'm considering 4 different stratas. 

If I run this, I'm considering a global multiplier for all the strata:
mult <- list(decay = data.frame(rate=c(0.41), SE=c(0.07)))
res_dens <- dht2(model_select, flatfile=dat, strat_formula = ~Region.Label, 
                 er_est = "P2", convert_units = conversion, stratification="geographical",
                 multipliers = mult)

I've tried with this:
mult <- list(decay = data.frame(rate=c(0.41, 0.47, 0.47, 0.36), SE=c(0.07, 0.06, 0.07, 0.08)))
 
and also by creating 4 different 'mult' objects, and later: multipliers =c(mult1, mult2, mult3, mult4)

but nothing works... 
It is possible to define a specific multiplier to each strata on 'dht2' function? Or I should include that on the 'Effort' column of my data frame?


Thank you very much for your help :)
Pablo

Unfortunately, the ability to specify stratum-specific multipliers is not yet implemented in `dht2`.  If you are using multipliers to compensate for viewable area as you discussed in your earlier question, then you could incorporate that compensation into your Effort measures.

Yes, that is. Thank you very much for your response!
