Objectives—This report presents state-level estimates of the percentage of adults and children living in households that did not have a landline telephone but did have at least one wireless telephone. National estimates for the 12-month time period from July 2009 through June 2010 indicate that 23.9% of adults and 27.5% of children were living in these(More)
OBJECTIVES This report updates subnational estimates of the percentage of adults and children living in households that do not have a landline telephone but have at least one wireless telephone (i.e., wireless-only households). State-level estimates for 2012 are presented, along with estimates for selected U.S. counties and groups of counties, for other(More)

We study and partially solve three distinct problems in small area estimation. The problems are loosely connected by a common theme of prediction and (empirical) Bayesian models. In the first part of the thesis we consider prediction in a survey small area context with spatially correlated errors. We introduce a novel asymptotic framework in which the(More)
