Dear All

I would like to enquire about the existence of ado or code to perform small area estimation in stata. I understand that small area estimation can be generated using GLLAMM (nested error random effect model with small area effects) Hierarchical Bayesian Modelling can also be used to introduce complex models using MCMC methods. However I do not know if this has been tried in stata.

For those of you unfamiliar with small area estimation: this is an area of statistics which tackles the problem of providing reliable estimates (and proper estandard errors) of a target variable in a
set of small geographical areas using sample estimates and extrapolating them typically to census data.

Any help on this matter will be greatly apprecieted
