Two stage non-parametric approach for small area estimation

Abstract

Small area estimators commonly borrow strength from other related areas. These indirect estimators use models (explicit or implicit) that relate the small areas through supplementary data. Various unit-level and area-level small area models are proposed in the literature, but all these models assume the small area mean is linearly related with supplementary… (More)
