A calibrated synthetic estimator for small area estimation

Synthetic estimators are known to produce estimates of population mean in areas where no sampled data are available, but such estimates are usually highly biased with invalid confidence statements. This paper presents a calibrated synthetic estimator of the population mean which addresses these problematic issues. Two known special cases of this estimator were obtained in the form of combined ratio and combined regression synthetic estimators, using selected tuning parameters under stratified

INFLUENCE OF SYNTHETIC FUEL ON NITRILE RUBBERS USED IN AVIATION

This paper investigates the influence of alternative fuel on selected butadiene–acrylonitrile rubbers used as seals in engine and fuel supply systems of postSoviet aircrafts. The conventional fuel Jet A-1, the synthetic blending component from hydrotreated esters and fatty acids (HEFA) and its blend were interacted with the sample nitrile rubbers. HEFA technology has been approved by ASTM D7655 for use in turbine aircraft engines. The effect was evaluated on the basis of changes in the

In the new beam model according to Tóth, Pluzsik and Juhász [7] the fictive pull-out force was assumed to be constant. The aim of this work is to choose a more appropriate analytical model for the pull-out of synthetic fibres which can be built in the beam model to improve it and to gain a more

The triphenylmethane dyes are derivatives of methane and are one of the groups of most used synthetic dyes. They are applied mainly at textile industry (for dyeing the wool, silk, cotton, nylon), also at leather, paper, plastic, food

The positional MEF-TOPSIS method for the assessment of complex economic phenomena in territorial units

In this paper, the authors propose a new methodological approach to the construction of a synthetic measure, where the objects are described by variables with strong asymmetry and extreme values (outliers). Even a single extreme value (very large or very small) of a variable for the object may significantly affect the attribution of an excessively high or low rank in the final ranking of objects. This dependence is particularly apparent when using the classical TOPSIS (Technique for Order of

ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF LIPOPEPTIDES

The constantly growing number of multidrug-resistant bacterial strains prompts the search for alternative treatments. Synthetic peptides based on natural antimicrobial peptides, also known as antimicrobial lipopeptides, can become a promising group of “drugs” to fight multi-resistant bacteria. The present paper discusses the origins of synthetic lipopeptides, their classification and antimicro- bial properties.

A TWO-COMPONENT NORMAL MIXTURE ALTERNATIVE TO THE FAY-HERRIOT MODEL

This article considers a robust hierarchical Bayesian approach to deal with random effects of small area means when some of these effects assume extreme values, resulting in outliers. In the presence of outliers, the standard Fay-Herriot model, used for modeling area-level data, under normality assumptions of random effects may overestimate the random effects variance, thus providing less than ideal shrinkage towards the synthetic regression predictions and inhibiting the borrowing of

A comparative study of a class of direct estimators for domain mean with a direct ratio estimator for domain mean using auxiliary character

Estimation techniques for a domain parameter play a very significant role in the theory of sample surveys. In the recent years many advanced methodologies have been developed for domain estimation. In particular, direct and synthetic estimators are applied for the estimation of domain mean in the government and private sectors under certain assumptions as to the size of the samples relating to particular domains. The findings demonstrate that the direct estimator fails to perform more

INFERENTIAL ISSUES IN MODEL-BASED SMALL AREA ESTIMATION: SOME NEW DEVELOPMENTS

Small area estimation (SAE) has seen a rapid growth over the past 10 years or so. Earlier work is covered in the author's book (Rao 2003). The main purpose of this paper is to highlight some new developments in model-based SAE since the publication of the author's book. A large part of the new theory addressed practical issues associated with the model-based approach, and we present some of those methods for area level and unit level models. We also briefly mention some new work on synthetic
