Small Area Estimation 2014

3-5 September, Poznan, Poland


The methodology of small area estimation (SAE) plays an important role in the field of modern information provision, which aims to cut survey costs while lowering the respondent burden. Thanks to their properties, the SAE methods enable reliable estimation at lower levels of spatial aggregation and with more specific domains, where direct estimation techniques display too much estimator variance.

The main aim of the SAE 2014 conference is to assess the current research on small area estimation and related fields. The conference will focus on aspects of methodological and practical achievements in small area estimation methods in recent years. The conference will also help to bring together the world of scientists from universities and practitioners working in National Statistical Offices and other researches agencies.

The SAE 2014 Conference is organised as part of activities of the European Working Group on Small Area Estimation and is the next in the series of conferences which have so far been held in Jyväskylä, Pisa, Elche and Trier.

We look forward to seeing you in Poznan!
