3) and it is likely that the adjustment can work even under the pseudo-EBLUP approach, but up to now no evidence of it has been produced. The tendency of GREG estimators is similar to that of direct estimators and in contrast to that of the over-shrinking empirical Bayes (EB) predictors, as the results of the EURAREA project have shown. The behavior of M-quantile-based predictors is then more similar to that of direct estimators and GREG. Fabrizi et al. (2014b) propose an adjustment of the benchmarked MQ predictors in order to obtain estimators with approximately neutral shrinkage.

D. 3) cannot be used. In fact the size is too small to obtain acceptable statistical significance of the direct estimates obtained under the sample design. Then the purely design-based solution and the usage of direct estimates often implies the increase of the sample size, oversampling of the studied domains. If oversampling is done, credible estimates can be obtained with appropriate direct estimators and the SAE problem is solved. Nevertheless, in many practical situations oversampling is far from being an option as cost–benefit analysis excludes it as a time-consuming and unaffordable solution.

In the simplest case a fixed effects regression model is assumed: E(yjd ) = xTjd ????, ∀j ∈ Ud , ∀d where the expectation is taken with respect to the assisting model. Lehtonen and Veijanen (1999) introduce an assisting two-level model where E(yjd ) = xTjd (???? + ud ), which is a model with area-specific regression coefficients. In practice, not all coefficients need to be random and models with area-specific intercepts mimicking linear mixed models may be used (Lehtonen et al. 2003). 7) with ŷ jd = xTjd (????̂ + û d ).
