Abstract

The Small Area Estimation (SAE) is useful for estimating subpopulation parameters with small sample size. Various methods have been developed to estimate the area parameters, especially model-based methods. The Empirical Bayes is a method that can be used to estimate small area parameters. A small area is defined as a subpopulation (area) that is the size of a small sample. This Empirical Bayes method is suitable for use in counted data with the Poisson-Gamma model in addition to the Bayesian Hierarchical method. The purpose of this study was to examine the use of the empirical Bayes method in small area statistical estimation based on the Poisson-Gamma model with accompanying variables. The results showed that SAE for discrete data, namely the Empirical Bayes relative risk estimator from the Poisson-Gamma model with accompanying variables, gave estimation results with higher accuracy than the direct estimator of Standardized Mortality Ratio (SMR).
