Malgorzata K. Krzciuk, Tomasz Stachurski, Tomasz Zadlo, On empirical best predictors of poverty measures based on Polish household budget survey

We consider the problem of estimation of poverty measures: head count ratio, poverty gap and poverty severity in subpopulations. We propose a superpopulation model, which belongs to the class of nested error mixed linear models and the empirical best predictor, which can be used even for very large populations. Theoretical considerations are supported by a real data application based on the Polish household budget survey from 2011.
