Small Area Estimation feasibility: MENE survey (NECR268)

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

Using data collected by the Monitor of Engagement with the Natural Environment (MENE survey), this project aims to determine whether Small Area Estimation (SAE) techniques can be used by Natural England to improve upon the accuracy and precision of survey-based estimates of the extent to which local populations engage with the natural environment. More specially, it is concerned with quantifying improvements in accuracy and precision and determining what savings (in terms of effective sample sizes) can be achieved when applying SAE techniques at Local Authority level as well as illustrating the potential for use at the Middle Layer Census Super Output Area (MSOA).
