To answer to DG Regio’s request, Eurostat wishes to carry out regional estimations of the AROPE indicator (At-Risk-Of-Poverty-or-Exclusion) and its components, derived from the EU-SILC survey. For that purpose, we suggest to use estimators which are named ‘synthetic estimators’ by the small area estimation theory. Their calculation would be made with a calibration method on regional margins supplying 22 sets of weights implying all the households of the national SILC sample (one set for each region). This method is adapted to the production of regional indicators built from variables of interest
which appear well correlated with the calibration variables. We thus use external sources in order to produce regional margins from variables well correlated with the variables making up the AROPE indicator, in particular at the moment the source ‘Revenus disponibles localisés’.
