Jan 09,  · (Short Book Reviews, ) "This book will help to advance the subject and be a valuable resource for practitioners and theorists.” (Statistics in Transition, November ) "This book is essential to any basic library on small estimation. 6. Small-Area Estimation. FINDING THE BOUNDARIES: WHEN DO DIRECT SURVEY ESTIMATES MEET SMALL-AREA NEEDS? This session focused on the topic of producing estimates in situations in which only a small amount of information is available or there are other limitations, such as physical, temporal, or conceptual boundaries that make direct estimation difficult. "The book aims at introducing modern statistical small area estimation methodologies into the framework of spatial microsimulation modelling for a comprehensive presentation, providing a novel approach with much potential in comparative social research and regional statistics by: 4. Small Area Estimation, Second Edition is an excellent reference for practicing statisticians and survey methodologists as well as practitioners interested in learning SAE methods. The Second Edition is also an ideal textbook for graduate-level courses in SAE and reliable small area statistics.

Feb 25,  · An accessible introduction to indirect estimation methods, both traditional and model-based. Readers will also find the latest methods for measuring the variability of the estimates as well as the techniques for model validation. Uses a basic area-level linear model to illustrate the methods Presents the various extensions including binary response data through generalized linear models and.
