What is it about?

The surveys offer reliable results mainly for aggregated population domains because more specific domains would cost more. However, the user claims it is his or her right to the information in specific domains for which official surveys are not designed. This information is reached by applying Small Area Estimation (SAE) techniques.

Why is it important?

There is a growing demand of subnational level information in order to design and evaluate specific social programs, and for rational allocation of resources.

Perspectives

The methodology introduced in the article is a general tool that is useful for calculating estimates on a subnational level under any context, as long as there is a survey with objective variables of estimation and other information sources with explicative auxiliary variables.
