saeHB.hnb: Small Area Estimation under Hurdle Negative Binomial
Distribution using Hierarchical Bayesian Method
We design this package to provide a function for area level of small area estimation using Hierarchical Bayesian (HB) method under Hurdle Negative Binomial Distribution. This package provides model using Univariate Hurdle Negative Binomial Distribution for variable of interest. This package also provides a dataset produced by a data generation. The 'rjags' package is employed to obtain parameter estimates. Model-based estimators involves the Hierarchical Bayes estimators which include the mean and the variation of mean.
