Sample size dependent estimators for small areas: CS11-617/85-62E-PDF

"In this paper, some simple estimators which are a weighted combination of the poststratified estimator and the synthetic or model based estimator are proposed. The weights are simple functions of either the actual and the expected sample sizes or the actual sample total of the auxiliary variable and its expected value in the small areas of interest. The properties of these estimators are investigated through a Monte Carlo simulation based on business tax data"--Abstract.
