New PDF release: Analysis of Poverty Data by Small Area Estimation

By Monica Pratesi

A finished advisor to imposing SAE equipment for poverty stories and poverty mapping

There is an more and more pressing call for for poverty and residing stipulations facts, on the subject of neighborhood components and/or subpopulations. coverage makers and stakeholders want symptoms and maps of poverty and dwelling stipulations on the way to formulate and enforce rules, (re)distribute assets, and degree the impact of neighborhood coverage actions.

Small sector Estimation (SAE) performs a vital position in generating statistically sound estimates for poverty mapping. This ebook deals a entire resource of knowledge in regards to the use of SAE tools tailored to those particular gains of poverty info derived from surveys and administrative data. The publication covers the definition of poverty signs, facts assortment and integration tools, the impression of sampling layout, weighting and variance estimation, the problem of SAE modelling and robustness, the spatio-temporal modelling of poverty, and the SAE of the distribution functionality of source of revenue and inequalities. Examples of knowledge analyses and functions are supplied, and the publication is supported by means of an internet site describing scripts written in SAS or R software program, which accompany nearly all of the awarded methods.

Key features:

  • Presents a entire assessment of SAE equipment for poverty mapping
  • Demonstrates the purposes of SAE tools utilizing real-life case studies
  • Offers assistance at the use of workouts and selection of sites from which to obtain them

Analysis of Poverty information by means of Small zone Estimation bargains an advent to complex options from either a pragmatic and a methodological point of view, and should turn out a useful source for researchers actively engaged in organizing, dealing with and carrying out reviews on poverty.

For example, point-based census or survey data may be aggregated into census enumeration districts, or post-code areas, or any other spatial partition (thus, the “areal units” are “modifiable”). The topic has not yet been treated explicitly in the current literature on SAE. The only empirical study is due to Pratesi and Petrucci (2014) who studied the scale effect on SAE predictors by a simulation experiment. They provide evidence to assess the robustness of SAE methods to different scale of aggregation of the point-based measures inside the pre-defined small areas (domains) of interest.

With respect to the empirical pseudo best approach recalled before there is no contribution addressing the robustification of the estimates against the presence of outliers. Jiang et al. (2011) relaxed some of the classical EBLUP model to obtain robust-model based predictors. These relaxations may work also under the pseudo-EBLUP approach but until now no evidence of it has been produced. The AMELI project provides evidence also on the behavior of the Empirical Best Predictor type estimator based on a logistic mixed model.

6). They extend the methodology of Fabrizi et al. (2014b) to obtain estimates that enjoy “ensemble” properties, that is properties related to the estimation of a functional of an ensemble of parameters (Frey and Cressie, 2003). An ensemble of estimators is said to be neutral with respect to shrinkage if the variance of the ensemble of the parameters can be unbiasedly estimated by the variance of the ensemble of the estimators. This guarantees a correct representation of the geographical variation of the variable in question.
