Day 2 Jean Monnet Chair SAMPLEU Workshop – 9 May 2018

The second day of the Workshop on “Small Area Methods and living conditions indicators in European poverty studies in the era of data deluge and Big data” was opened by a Keynote of Prof. Partha Lahiri of the Unviersity of Mayland. He presented Small Area Estimation Methods in order to produce official data for policy making. The aim of the first Table of the second day (Table 3) was to give insight into the use of new and traditional data sources for local indicators and in particular the three panelists focused on big data and their possible use in the context of small area estimation. Table 4 led participants to reflect on the statistical quality of small area estimates. In the Contributed Paper Session five speakers presented both applied and methodological works in the context of small area estimation. Poster session concluded the second day of the Workshop.
