NSAE: Nonstationary Small Area Estimation
Executes nonstationary Fay-Herriot model and nonstationary generalized linear mixed model for small area estimation.The empirical best linear unbiased predictor (EBLUP) under stationary and nonstationary Fay-Herriot models and empirical best predictor (EBP) under nonstationary generalized linear mixed model along with the mean squared error estimation are included. EBLUP for prediction of non-sample area is also included under both stationary and nonstationary Fay-Herriot models. This extension to the Fay-Herriot model that accounts for the presence of spatial nonstationarity was developed by Hukum Chandra, Nicola Salvati and Ray Chambers (2015) <doi:10.1093/jssam/smu026> and nonstationary generalized linear mixed model was developed by Hukum Chandra, Nicola Salvati and Ray Chambers (2017) <doi:10.1016/j.spasta.2017.01.004>. This package is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Hukum Chandra who passed away while the package creation was in progress.
