Abstract


There have been many studies developed to improve the quality of estimates in small area estimation (SAE). The standard method known as EBLUP (Empirical Unbiased Best Linear Predictor) has been developed by incorporating spatial effects into the model. This modification of the method was known SEBLUP (Spatial EBLUP) since it incorporates the spatial correlations which exist among the small areas. The data obtained (variables of concern) usually have a large variance and tend to have a a nonsymmetric distribution and therefore tend to have nonlinear relationship pattern between concomitant variables and variables of concern. the results showed that the method SEBLUP using logarithmic transformation produces estimator more than the other methods.
