I want to select 15 cases from each cluster randomly selected to be representative of the age & sex distribution of each cluster. (The age range is 4-11 years. To simplify we are using age groups 4-7 and 8-11). For example, for cluster 1 (N = 220), if there are 22 females aged 4-7 (10%), then I'd like the sample of 15 to reflect this proportion (2 clients, rounded up from 1.5). If there are 110 males aged 8-11 (50%), I'd like the sample of 15 to reflect this proportion (7 or 8 clients). I am looking for some type of syntax to randomly identify these clients, with the proportions in the population reflected in the sample.
