Estimadores compuestos en estadística regional: aplicación para la tasa de variación de la ocupación en la industria

Author

Abstract

This work is part of a project studying the performance of model based estimators in a small area context. We have chosen a simple statistical application in which we estimate the growth rate of accupation for several regions of Spain. We compare three estimators: the direct one based on straightforward results from the survey (which is unbiassed), and a third one which is based in a statistical model and that minimizes the mean square error.
