Seminario 21/19: Maria Chiara Pagliarella (INAPP of Rome and University of Cassino and Southern Lazio): Areal sampling strategies for estimating totals and averages on a grid of quadrats: applications to forest surveys

The Reduction of Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) project was proposed and initiated in 2005. Monitoring of forest cover by statistical methodologies is a key pre-requisite. Forest cover is usually estimated at large scale by spatial sampling strategies, in which the study region is partitioned into polygons of equal size (e.g. quadrats). Then,…

Seminario 21/18: Maria Chiara Pagliarella (INAPP of Rome and University of Cassino and Southern Lazio): Small area estimation of poverty indicators under partitioned area-level time models

This paper deals with small area estimation of poverty indicators. Small area estimators of these quantities are derived from partitioned time-dependent area-level linear mixed models. The introduced models are useful for modelling the different behaviour of the target variable by sex or any other dichotomic characteristic. The mean squared errors are estimated by explicit formulas….

Seminario 21/17: Luis Orea (Universidad de Oviedo): Estimating a stochastic epidemic frontier model that controls for undocumented COVID-19 cases with an application to Spain

We use a stochastic frontier analysis (SFA) approach to model the propagation of the COVID-19 epidemic across geographical areas. The proposed models permit reported and undocumented cases to be estimated, which is important as case counts are overwhelmingly believed to be undercounted. The models can be estimated using only epidemic-type data but are flexible enough…

Seminario 21/16: Ricardo Martínez (Universidad de Granada): Compensation and sacrifice in the probabilistic rationing of indivisible units

We consider the problem of randomly allocating indivisible units of a resource among agents with conflicting claims on the resource. In the two-agent case, we characterize three focal rules combining axioms reflecting principles of compensation and sacrifice: probabilistic uniform awards, probabilistic uniform losses and probabilistic concede-and-divide. In the general case of n agents, the two…
