Generalized class of synthetic estimators for small areas under systematic sampling scheme
This paper defines and discusses a generalized class of synthetic estimators for small domain, using auxiliary information, under systematic sampling scheme. The generalized class of synthetic estimators, among others, includes the simple, ratio and product synthetic estimators. Further, it demonstrates the use of the generalized synthetic and ratio synthetic estimators for estimating crop acreage for small domain and also compares their relative performance with direct estimators, empirically, through a simulation study.
