Small Domain Estimation of the Number of Employed in Different Weekly Work Hour Categories

Abstract:
The paper discusses small domain estimation. More specifically, we report on investigations of synthetic estimation techniques for obtaining information on the number of persons in different “weekly work hour” categories for domains on the Swedish municipality level. On the basis of the results from the investigations reported on here, Statistics Sweden has in fact taken a synthetic estimation system into regular use, in which small domain estimates are produced by combining information from a newly established Annual Register of Employment (ARE) with information from the Labour Force Survey (LFS).

Keywords:
Model-dependent; synthetic estimator; simulation study.
