A comparative study of small area estimators.

Laureano Santamaría, Domingo Morales, Isabel Molina (2004)


It is known that direct-survey estimators of small area parameters, calculated with the data from the given small area, often present large mean squared errors because of small sample sizes in the small areas. Model-based estimators borrow strength from other related areas to avoid this problem. How small should domain sample sizes be to recommend the use of model-based estimators? How robust are small area estimators with respect to the rate sample size/number of domains?To give answers or recommendations...
