Mandallaz' Model-Assisted Small Area Estimators

An S4 implementation of the unbiased extension of the model- assisted synthetic-regression estimator proposed by Mandallaz (2013) , Mandallaz et al. (2013) and Mandallaz (2014) . It yields smaller variances than the standard bias correction, the generalised regression estimator.

This is an R package for small area estimation (the unbiased extension of the model-assisted synthetic-regression estimator proposed by Daniel Mandallaz of ETH Zuerich in 2013 and 2014.)

In R, try:
