An assessment of empirical Bayes and composite estimators for small areas
Longford, Nicholas
Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Departament d'Economia i Empresa
We compare a set of empirical Bayes and composite estimators of the population means of the districts (small areas) of a country, and show that the natural modelling strategy of searching for a well fitting empirical Bayes model and using it for estimation of the area-level means can be inefficient.
