The problem of small area estimation (SAE) is how to produce reliable estimates of characteristics of interest such as means, counts, quantiles, etc., for areas or domains for which only small samples or no samples are available, and how to assess their precision. The purpose of this paper is to review and discuss some of the new important developments in small area estimation methods. Rao (2003) wrote a very comprehensive book, which covers all the main developments in this topic until that… 
Robust Small Area Estimation: An Overview
A small area typically refers to a subpopulation or domain of interest for which a reliable direct estimate, based only on the domain-specific sample, cannot be produced due to small sample size in

Small Area Quantile Estimation
TLDR
An array of small area quantile estimators are developed with the introduction of a semiparametric density ratio model for the error distribution in the unit-level nested error regression model and a resampling procedure for estimating the mean square errors of these estimators.
New Bias Calibration for Robust Estimation in Small Areas
Using sample surveys as a cost effective tool to provide estimates for characteristics of interest at population and sub-populations (area/domain) level has a long tradition in “small area
Localised Estimates of Dynamics of Multi‐dimensional Disadvantage: An Application of the Small Area Estimation Technique Using Australian Survey and Census Data
Deep and persistent disadvantage is an important, but statistically rare, phenomenon in the population, and sample sizes are usually not large enough to provide reliable estimates for disaggregated
Small area mean estimation after effect clustering
ABSTRACT Providing reliable estimates of subpopulation/area parameters has attracted increased attention due to their importance in applications such as policymaking. Due to low or even no samples
Information theoretic methods in small domain estimation
ABSTRACT Small area estimation techniques are becoming increasingly used in survey applications to provide estimates for local areas of interest. The objective of this article is to develop and apply
Semi-parametric prediction intervals in small areas when auxiliary data are measured with error.
In recent years, demand for reliable small area statistics has considerably increased, but the size of samples obtained in small areas is too often small to produce accurate predictors of quantities

The purpose of this paper is to provide a critical review of the main advances in small area estimation (SAE) methods in recent years. We also discuss some of the earlier developments, which serve as
Model-Based Approach to Small Area Estimation
Some Methods for Small Area Estimation
TLDR
This paper provides an introduction to small area estimation with emphasis on explicit model-based estimation, including «off-the-shelf» re-weighting methods, simulated census methods used by the World Bank and formal empirical Bayes and hierarchical Bayes methods, based on explicit models.
The estimation of the mean squared error of small-area estimators
Abstract Small-area estimation has received considerable attention in recent years because of a growing demand for reliable small-area statistics. The direct-survey estimators, based only on the data
Bayesian benchmarking with applications to small area estimation
TLDR
This paper proposes a general class of constrained Bayesian estimators which can accommodate any arbitrary model, and the benchmarked Bayes estimators are based only on the posterior mean and the posterior variance-covariance matrix.
Small Area Estimation: An Appraisal
TLDR
Empirical best linear unbiased prediction as well as empirical and hierarchical Bayes seem to have a distinct advantage over other methods in small area estimation.
Robust small area estimation
Small area estimation has received considerable attention in recent years because of growing demand for small area statistics. Basic area‐level and unit‐level models have been studied in the
Small Area Estimation Under a Restriction
There are many situations in which it is desirable to derive reliable estimators for small geographical areas or small subpopulations, from existing survey data. The basic random e ects model and
M-quantile models for small area estimation
Small area estimation techniques typically rely on regression models that use both covariates and random effects to explain variation between the areas. However, such models also depend on strong
Generalized Linear Models for Small-Area Estimation
Abstract Bayesian methods have been used quite extensively in recent years for solving small-area estimation problems. Particularly effective in this regard has been the hierarchical or empirical
