Adjusting economic estimates in business surveys
AbstractStatistics for small areas within larger regions are recently required for many economic variables. However, when adding the estimates of the small areas within the larger regions, the results do not match up to those obtained with the appropriate estimator originally derived for the larger region. To avoid discrepancies between estimates benchmarking methods are commonly used in practice. In this paper, we discuss the suitability of using a restricted predictor versus a traditional direct calibrated estimator. The results are illustrated with the 2000 Business Survey of the Basque Country, Spain.
