  1. Cluster, population cluster size (N), average of Modified Rogers’ distance per cluster (mrdMean), proportion of mrd per cluster (p), number assigned (nD), correction of the assigned number due to the small groups (s50), assigned sample size for 40, 30, 20, 10, and 5% of the population (s40 to s05)
  2. aAfter the correction, due to nD > N, the complementary sample size was reassigned on the other groups proportionally to mrdMean
