A Bayesian approach for small area population estimates using multiple administrative records

by   Jairo Fuquene, et al.

Small area population estimates are useful for decision making in the private and public sectors. However, in small areas (i.e., those that are difficult to reach and with small population sizes) computing demographic quantities is complicated. Bayesian methods are an alternative for demographic population estimates which uses data from multiple administrative records. In this paper we explore a Bayesian approach which is simple and flexible and represents an alternative procedure for base population estimates particularly powerful for intercensal periods. The applicability of the methodological procedure is illustrated using population pyramids in the municipality of Jamundí in Colombia.
